A River Runs Through it


Do you ever feel like you have been somewhere before and would like to capture the vision a second time?  It is early fall, the colors just taking over the forest and bringing a fresh new vision and renewed inspiration.  This piece captures that.  I am very excited about the abstract angles that give strength to the composition, and I wanted to build the lights, pale yellows, greens, ochres and the soft gray in the distance.  Each layer of warm, cool colors that is lovingly developed in each subsequent layer builds depth and space to draw the viewer down the path along the river.  A river meanders along, caressing the shore and off to places unknown, as quickly as the wind blows through the trees, changing the earth in ways we can only dream of.  When I look at the finished work of art, I  will feel the sun in my face and the wind in my hair as though I was there again.
