Evening Pond

Work in Progress
Evening Pond
36 x 30


As I've written many times before, there is something very compelling about autumn to me. Visually, its a time that the landscape begins to strip itself bare, to uncover and expose the structure of things. The rhythm of life seems to slow, even to ebb. The sun which used to set directly behind my house, offering extravagant sunsets in summer, has migrated to the south and slips below the horizon, sending weak rays of light across the field behind my studio.

Beautiful, Deborah!

Wonderful sky color...love how it peeks through the skyholes in the main tree and appears as slashes of color between the distant tree trunks.

Thank you Suzanne- and thanks for stopping by!


Hi Dean. I have a bit of an obsession about light coming through stands of trees, so I'm glad you like it!

You write beautifully as you paint. The words and work encompass my feelings about that time of year. Lovely!
