ABOUT THE ART

A scene tucked away along my favorite trail, I’ve visualized this spring painting for probably all the 20 years I’ve been walking this trail. Carefully tiptoeing along the brush at the edge of the opposite bank I leaned out to see the suddenly brilliant mosses contrasting with the fading reddish leaf cover, the limestone cliff in all its details reflected in the water burbling around the bend below, deeper than usual for the spring thaws, trees clinging to the edge, the mist in the woods beyond.

Photographs were difficult because of the brush growing along the bank I stood on, and I did my best to capture it each year from slightly different angles but knew a painting would be the only way to share this moment of awakening when, soon, all the trees would fill with shadows, the stream ripple and roar over the rocks and bird song fill the woods, all beginning at this moment.

You can also find this painting in my gallery of Landscape Artwork.
