The Gentle Arrival of Autumn

It seems this will be a year where we slowly ease into the autumn season. Hopefully it will last for a good while this year! The area and this pond was a recent discovery after a morning of pancakes and maple syrup at our favorite local sugar house. Not sure which I enjoyed more, the pancakes of finding this beautiful location.

Summer Afternoon, Sudbury, VT, 18 x 24

I find this somewhat of a challenging post. With the destruction of so much of Vermont, after hurricane or tropical storm, Irene, I would think my time would be better spent trying to help those in need as opposed to posting a photo of a painting online. I think however, in the midst of the chaos of the floods here in Vermont, it is important to focus on the brighter days, the future and those moments which, in the challenges of tragedy, remind one that all shall be well and truly, time heels all wounds.
So I present this posting of a painting which I recently completed. When I see the piles of debris around the state and read of the heartbreak so many have faced after the floods, it is the scenes such as the one depicted in this painting which bring to me a sense of calm and peace, the thought; all shall be well, in time.
Maybe through viewing this painting you will be somehow lifted and hopefully reminded, all shall be well.

We are fine, the studio is fine and thankfully we sustained no damage to our home or property. Thank you for reading this post and for your keen interest in my work.
