Day 10: #rogertorypetersoninstitute What a range of weather we had today. I started with a sweater, jacket and gloves and I now sit in the RTPI Library in a t-shirt. It’s just that time of year, unpredictable. Summer is still flexing its muscles, while autumn reminds us all that “times they are a changing”. That change can be seen easiest in the plants and foliage around us.
I found today’s subject surrounding the pond at RTPI, it’s roots in the water and it’s flower defiantly facing the eastern edge of fall. I gave thought to just painting the flowers that were in full bloom, but doing so would not truly be reflective to the season that we are in. We are in the “tween season” when summer and fall exist together, but elbow each other like a hall full of Middle Schoolers on their way to lunch.
