Whenever I look down into the water’s reflections, I feel as though I’m privy to the pond’s secrets, and a view that is just out of reach. Inside Autumn revisits the locale of the painting Autumn Reverie, but now the red chorus is in full voice. The duckweed is thinning, more leaves are falling, and I know the water will soon be clear and cold. Bare branches will be the only theme. And ice. And snow. I admit the soon-to-arrive blue shadows will also be a treat to paint. In the meantime, enjoy the reds!
Below is an earlier version of the same painting. Some paintings are years in development as I keep thinking of ways to enhance their impact
