Residing in New England, autumn feels like a gift. As the days turn crisp, a kaleidoscope of gold and amber envelops the landscape. The shimmering sun casts a glow on rustling leaves, while the scent of apples and pumpkins fills the air. A cool breeze carries with it the comforting aroma of cinnamon, wrapping the surroundings in a cozy embrace. I cherish these moments, sitting outdoors, lost in the vastness of nature’s beauty. It’s a time of reflection, of witnessing life’s ephemeral transitions, and truly immersing oneself in the present. It reminds me to embrace change and savor life’s fleeting moments. I thing my cat felt it the same way.
I drew my cat, her name is “xiao kitty“, gracefully perched on a tree trunk. Her inquisitive eyes met mine with an intense gaze. I interspersed the artwork with gold flakes, a technique inspired by my deep appreciation for Japanese art.
