Celebrating Fall

Fall Priestess

Fall is my favorite season and most favorite time of the year.

I love to completely immerse myself in the season by decorating my home for Halloween early, eating and drinking all things pumpkin and watching every scary movie I can get my hands on. Even though I live in Florida where an actual Fall season is basically non-existent, nothing stops me from getting in the Autumn spirit! I know I’m not the only one with this obsessive love for the Fall season. So I decided to paint a Fall priestess to honor all the other Fall-addicts out there.

Since I already painted a Fall Goddess (check her out here) last year, I figured a Fall priestess would be perfect for this year.

In this painting, a priestess is carrying a jack-o-lantern to light her way through a Fall forest. Leaves of warm colors like reds, oranges, yellows and browns cover the ground and fall from the trees. The priestess finds herself in a pumpkin patch while her feline familiars play with the leaves falling around them. Candles adorn the tree and light up the crescent moon.

This painting is literally just in time for Fall as the Autumn Equinox is on Saturday.

For those of you who love Fall as much as I do, prints and mini prints of this piece can be found in my shop. This will most likely be the last painting I do until after Halloween. This will give me a much needed break so that I can fully enjoy this time of year.

How do you honor the Fall season?
