Autumn journey

"Autumn Journey," 8 x 10 watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white cold press paper 
Every painting is a journey...of challenges, of learning, of imagination, of planning, of problem solving, of technique, of frustrations, and of failures.
This one, a version of today's earlier greeting card, came from today's earlier failures. So I had to try again, on a larger format than the greeting card. Learned more. Another journey.
Cabins? Yes. Autumn? Yes. Aging? Yes. Journeys? Too many to count.
