Inspired by Nature – Autumn Aspen

Every time I see someones art or the gift of nature’s beauty I’m inspired! With some, the inspiration is so powerful I have to weave some beads and create a little piece of art myself! It’s a thrilling ride, a color festival and I don’t want to go home.

Again it’s time to share a powerful gift of nature…Autumn Aspens on the North Shore of Minnesota led me to create another visual experience that will delight the eyes and spark the spirit!
