|"Sunflower Season," 5 x 5 acrylic on canvas
Autumn...season of colors, nature's paintbrush, the most beautiful time of year.
We think of our lives differently, of aging, of approaching death, and rarely of the color of our lives. Perhaps we instead should draw inspiration from nature, that these times should also be our most vivid, most full of the beauty of life.
I especially love the colors of Aspen and Cottonwoods in New Mexico, in the strata of the Southwest, and of the brilliant hardwoods changing in the upper Midwest and New England.
Yet I only have to glimpse the roadsides of Oklahoma for more of the colors.
