{points of two week #39: the marvelous colors of fall!}


Points of Two is an experiment in journaling with myself and Roben Marie! Check out our archives to see the previous weeks' pages.

Hiya! Welcome back to Points of Two! We took a little break while I moved cross-country, but now we’re back and ready with new pages for you this week!

Our prompt was fall colors.

I’ve never been a huge fan of fall. In fact, I always grumbled when it came around because that meant summer was over and winter - a freezing, white, Chicago winter - was on the horizon. I really hate digging my car out and having to wear four layers and a hat and gloves and a scarf and…

But now I live in Arizona, where I’m pretty sure I won’t be seeing ANY snow, unless I drive up north.

Our route out here took us through Missouri, and I can’t imagine a more beautiful, temperate time to drive through the Ozarks. The trees were beautiful shades of gold, red, and fading green. The air cool but not cold. Out every window there was a rainbow of color, a blanket of leaves tossed over the rolling hills.

Color is what I observed most while driving, and I can see my color palette shifting, changing just as my surroundings have.


After almost a month of delayed art, getting back into art journaling feels weird. Like when you get home from a great vacation - you’re HOME, a comfortable, worn place, yet it feels like you’re still in that tropical dream, waking to the sounds of normality all around you…

And here's Roben-Marie's page!

Also, since I didn’t get to posting it yesterday, here’s a bit more progress on my painting. I may let it sit for a day while I play on some smaller pieces of loose canvas, but who knows?
