Pure Color!

"Art is unquestionably one of the purest
and highest elements in human happiness.
It trains the mind through the eye,
and the eye through the mind.
As the sun colors flowers,
so does art color life."
-John Lubbock
I have heard more people say, "the leaves and the colors of this Fall have been beautiful." And, I would have to agree. I am fortunate to live in a state that has four complete seasons. Generally, Fall is speckled with specific details that make it unique to Fall...but, this year the leaves are definitely making a statement. When the leaves change, very seldom do you see every leaf on the tree become one distinct color...but, not this year....many trees have changed to become one pure color of Fall. It is nature's color palette in its purest form. Red is red...and yellow is yellow....a pure color for art's sake.

Just gorgeous! Especially that golden one. Thanks for posting these. Most of our leaves have now all blown off.
