It is autumn here in Australia and all the trees are putting on their best show with their brilliant coats of oranges, reds and yellows. Even though the weather is cooler, visually it is a beautiful time of the year. Feeling inspired to capture their beauty I have painted my interpretation of what autumn means to me.

Autumn Song

Can you hear the sound of the whispering trees,
As they gently rustle in the morning breeze.
All lined up and ready to go,
Dressed in their best for a colourful show.
The song of the trees is about to begin,
Come sing along to this wonderous hymn!
