October: The header today is of my table top in the studio, which I posted on October 11th, the day before we left for our two week visit to England and France, and the day the studio was tidied up for the first time in months as you will have seen from the photos that day.
The previous week we enjoyed Autumn in all its glory on our final walk along the Admiralty Trail before leaving on our trip, a walk I posted about on October 5th for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries.
The table top and the trees seem to complement each other just perfectly, which I have to add only became apparent as I composed today’s post; serendipity working its magic once again.
Those of you who joined us, albeit virtually, on our European adventure will know what an unforgettable time we had. The photos I posted each day said it all so as a little reminder here is a slideshow of some of my favourites, many of which became paintings on our return. If you are visiting thechangingpalette for the first time and would like to learn more about the places we visited in London and the beautiful Périgord region of south west France why not browse through Days 287 to 299.
October was not entirely without its paintings. These are from the beginning of the month before we left.
