Come Sit With Me
I see every painting as an invitation for the viewer to join me as I soak in the beauty that is all around. This past week my best friend was visiting from California, and we took a hike along Bear Creek in the Rocky Mountains. When I mention Autumn in Colorado, we of course think first of the glorious golden aspens that light up the mountains. This day, however, I found a quieter wonder, basking in the afternoon sun along Bear Creek. With the soft sound of the creek in my ears, my eyes were filled with delight to see these trees with chartreuse leaves flickering in the gentle breeze, with some already dancing as they turned yellow and gold. Please, come sit next to me at the picnic table, and we can share this beautiful day.
