Left Behind, Oil on Linen, 11x14
After a Spring and Summer of incredible floods, we just experienced the driest Fall on record. One of the results is that there is more exposed drift wood in the Mississippi River than I ever remember seeing. This time of year should be all about snow paintings. Last year at this time we had about 30 inches on the ground, which, by the way, also was a record. The little snow we've received so far has melted except on icy patches of rivers and lakes.
