When a cold front pushes down the Great Plains, in Oklahoma or Texas, we see it coming, we feel it immediately--crisp air, cool breezes, brighter colors, flying leaves So do bird and animal life and the plant life.
It's time to watch the seasons change, and to drag out sweaters or thicker shirts, maybe a hat, perhaps a sweater. Make some soup or stew or chili, get that cup of coffee, light a fire and enjoy the freshness.
Today's watercolor, larger than usual, painted quickly to match the season, with a familiar theme for me...a barn and rural landscape. October! And for me, a study in complementary and contrasting colors, purples and oranges.
