september art journal

this months theme was red. red was john's favorite color. when i think of fall in new hampshire i think of red leaves and red apples...the air even smells of red, orange, yellow and brown. fall has always been my favorite season. john was diagnosed with cancer in the fall. we struggled through treatments that began in november and continued through winter and spring. summer was supposed to be the healing time, a season to gain strength. it didnt happen for us. by fall john was deteriorating and before winter settled in he was gone.
instead of being angry i focus on the gift that we were able to spend our final season together, my favorite season...

prints of leaves and acorns from my yard surrounded by the story of our final seasons together
