Imminent Fall, Oil on Linen, 24x18
Tomorrow is the first day of spring. We have two feet of snow on the ground to prove it. Watching the late season snow last week, I was drawn to thoughts of summer. This studio painting is roughly based on a plein air painting from a couple years ago. I remember it was quite warm and we had had a lot of rain in recent weeks. The grass was green and lush while the trees were already starting to turn. The word "Fall" in the title, of course, has two meanings.
