Winter is an etching,
spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting

and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Autumn does have a culminating sense about it: it is the finale, the wrap up, the faretheewell, the new leaf turned, now tired.

Everything that has come before is still here, under cover of glorious color and will remain after that last leaf falls and is recycled.

So we begin again with the annual rotation of the etchings, the pastels, the full throated oils and the ultimate mosaic.

The Artist’s signature can be spotted on every canvas.

  1. Can you tell me what kind of trees are the close up pictures for the 2nd and 3rd photos? I printed them off to keep in my classroom. I LOVE fall leaves. These are the most exquisite I have even seen. I never get tired of the photos on your blog. You bless me daily with your photos and words!
