|"Noelle and D" by Hilary J. England|

Yea, Labor Day. The official end of Summer. That makes me quite happy! I come out in the morning, and now I can feel the cool, faint, barely existent smell of Autumn, but soon, it will be here! The crisp, clean air, the beautiful foliage, the harvest moon. Yes, I look forward to Autumn with the same enthusiasm as I have since I was a kid--it was always my favorite season.
I have been working away, and have completed another mixed media work (I have yet to photo or post either of these works), and am working on a third. There will five works in all in this series, each addressing a different topic/emotional issue.
For now, I will leave you with this charcoal study entitled "Noelle and D" charcoal on paper, 18" x 24". It is a study for my "Rural American Youth" series, and I did several drawings in conjunction with that series. I'll post them as I photo them...I've been lazy in the heat, plus working on commissions.
Have a wonderful holiday!
