Pine Morning

I wakened and found what had been a sheath of black the night before, was now a multi-layered wonderland. Even the grasses varied in color and texture.  

Here's a sky painting with a little more foreground than I normally provide.

I will be traveling for a few days. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I'm thankful for your attention, your love and comments.


Hostas in the Back

Dee's flowers were thriving at this corner of the house. Ornamental grass dipped in front of the hostas and bright yellow daisies or mums of some sort brightened the foreground. 

I gravitated to the spot in the garden where the spiky flowers stand in the back row like the tall kids in the class photo.

The grasses on the slope blew in the breeze while we hiked toward the top of the hill. What was on the other side would be a surprise to me and my friend. Neither of us had been here before. 

Here's another sky for my composite piece.  Of course they are for sale individually, as well.

Along the bank of this stream was a bed of weeds that shone with such a vibrant red orange that I had to stop to photograph them. They were NOT indigenous to our locale.  Had someone planted them to amuse, bewilder, astound? 

I put the deep red weeds in the foreground of this traditional piece to give it life. And because of it, I tucked a bush in the background of the same color.  It had to be there.

Thanks for stopping by today.

On the Way to Rockford

"On the Way to Rockford"

Oil on canvas panel
This little stream shone with rippled excitement in the autumn light as I drove the back roads toward Rockford.  The scenery is much more appealing along this route than the Interstate.  

This small piece was a warm up for a larger landscape I'm working on.  I wanted to get the feeling of distance and a stream.  You'll see the larger piece in a few days.  It's drying some, so I can add an animal in the foreground.  Hmmmmm, not my usual fare.

Thanks for driving by today!
