Maybe it’s because of all the years spent painting blue/green seascapes, but I can’t seem to get enough of the color red lately. Red October and russet November yield such satisfyingly rich colors – running the gamut of gold orange scarlet crimson through violet-tinged siennas. In the painting Red Drift, we see another view of the pond at Hamlen Woods on a still day with the trees joyously reflected in the still, shallow water. The leaves falling on the water’s surface and slowly sinking are the real subject of the painting, along with the (last) green-gold sprinkling of duckweed. Autumn is about grand finales and quiet moments, A time for our reflections too. Details below, enjoy!
