The Aching Beauty of a Fall Studio Tour

The next four weekends deliver up a burst of studio tours, back road journeys that fill the soul with art, fall colors and contentment.  I’ve been doing two or three each autumn for many years, and always end my weekends with a sense of wonder at what artists do.  I also find the trek from barn to shed to studio along country lanes an achingly beautiful experience in my favorite season.  I encourage you to find one in your area.  Dozens of tours take place from this weekend onward, so have a look at  this Pinterest board I’ve put together with some studio  journey examples.

NOTE:  If  you know of a great fall studio tour, tell me its name or leave a link in the comments below, and I’ll add it to the Pinterest board. (Image at top of post is Marni Martin, Muskoka studio tour):
