Jo/ Autumn Prologue

The slopes blaze with red and orange as late autumn takes over this mountainous landscape, offering a feast of color before winter arrives. The dense clusters of evergreens add their own rich tones to the palette and complement the brilliant hues of the season.

Jo/ Autumn Prologue offers a feast of vibrant fall color that is richly complemented by the gold weft threads that add pinpoints of brilliance to the mountainous lopes ablaze with red and orange. The dense clusters of evergreens tucked between the hills have been crowned with touches of brilliant green embroidery to make their presence known. Their own deep, rich tones add effective contrast to the brilliant crimson hues of the season. The textured surface of the ground fabric provides a more complex background to the less dramatically toned areas of sea and sky.
