Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods,And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt,And night by night the monitory blastWails in the key-hold, telling how it pass'dO'er empty fields, or upland solitudes,Or grim wide wave; and now the power is feltOf melancholy, tenderer in its moodsThan any joy indulgent summer dealt.—William Allingham
As yet the blue-bells linger on the sodThat copes the sheepfold ring; and in the woodsA second blow of many flowers appears,Flowers faintly tinged, and breathing no perfume.But fruits, not blossoms, form the woodland wreathThat circles Autumn's brow : the ruddy hawsNow clothe the half-leaf'd thorn ; the bramble bendsBeneath its jetty load; the hazel hangsWith auburn bunches, dipping in the streamThat sweeps along, and threatens to o'erflowThe leaf-strewn banks. Oft statue-like I gaze,In vacancy of thought, upon that stream,And chase, with dreaming eye, the eddying foam,Or rowan's cluster'd branch, or harvest-sheaf,Borne rapidly adown the dizzying flood.
Growing up in the foothills of the southern Appalachian mountains, I have always held a deep adoration for Earth's beauty and scientific wonders, and a love for viewing and creating art. I have found enjoyment within illustration, reading, writing, and photography, and have gained a formal education in environmental biology, geography and landscape ecology. I volunteer in an exceedingly large collection of books at a local nonprofit store, where every week is a new adventure.
Just as DeviantArt has changed in countless ways over the past 15 years, so has my role on the site during 11 years of membership. Showcasing my own art has given way to featuring others' incredible work, an effort that is immensely enjoyable to me.

Contrasts of a Curious Mind #2One of us, Okavanga, has recently posted the first of these Features into the use and meaning of contrast in images, Contrasts of a Curious Mind #1, introducing the idea that contrast in an image need not be confined to aspects of light tonality, but can encompass contrasts as expressed by Johannes Itten, that contrasts of form and shape and quality are important, and further to the idea that contrasts of style, content and approach should also be considered when creating and viewing images. In this second instalment of "Contrasts of a Curious Mind", KristenSpork and Okavanga explore the idea of contrasts in Features, and we are indebted to TandemFeatures :icontandemfeatures: for supporting this endeavour.
