I haven’t left my yard yet. I hope to venture out into the neighborhood very soon, but goodness, with beauty like this, just feet from my front door, I could hang out here for a good long while and paint and paint and be quite content. As I go on my morning walks I see so much I want to get down on paper, to share with you the beauty. I seem to be “hypersensitive to the beauty around me” these days. (That quote is from John Denver…one of my all-time favorite singer/songwriters.) I can’t seem to get enough of the light, the golden-tipped world, the russet -tinged trees, the breeze, the smells, the rustling leaves. I wish I could capture all of that in a painting, so you could see/hear/feel it too!
I hope you can treat yourself to a walk, a bike ride, a drawing/painting session, or just a leisurely swing on your own front porch to enjoy what we’re given for a relatively short season.
Ahem…well, I just updated the previous post, then realized you probably won’t see this: a post from over a year ago, using the same title as this one, is actually a watercolor version of the same view in the previous post! The above painting is the view to the left of my front door, whereas the previous post’s view is to the right of my front door.
