When even the ground is gorgeous


Alison Staite was inspired by the masses of fallen leaves all over London – ‘a great excuse to play with orange, red and muted greens’ – to paint this exquisite little piece of the landscape near her home. It’s an increasingly rare treat to find actual personal correspondence in the piles of stuff from the Post Office, and jewels like this are an absolute delight!

Thank you, Alison.

Sensational - I love that we're getting some abstracted takes on our surroundings as well as representational art

So simple - yet tells everything about the season and Alison's surroundings.

I love the riot of color, just what I would expect to see if we, in California, actually had leaves change color during the seasons. Thank you for giving me a little seasonal change.
