This sketch popped in my mind when I was considering putting together a vignette. Amethyst, brass, lavender, grape, brown and black. I gravitate toward these colors in the Fall. They are an irresistible color in the Fall.
It was sketched by my grandmother’s mother. I thought with some grapes and lavender roses I had on hand, I could put together a vignette or two that has a fall like feel to it. The colors are perfect to me. My greatgrandmother was an artist and painted many paintings. I have shared before on here that she was sent to art school by her parents. They didn’t want her to become serious with a young man she was seeing. Their plan did not work and they married anyway. They had children and were very much in love but her beloved husband died early at 32. She must have felt forced to remarry. She married her father-in-law. She had a stroke while still young and my grandmother had to care for her. She died when my grandmother was 15. There was no transportation or phone. My grandmother walked to tell of her mother’s passing. Later my grandmother was sent to boarding school by her two older sisters. My greatgrandmother had many paintings that were shared with earlier generations.

I was surprised to find some very late wisteria on our bush. I promise it’s real!
