Illumined

wildflower watercolor

   My emotions turn a little bittersweet at this time of the year. Autumn is an exuberant time of color and temperatures cooling down. However, it means the growing season is closing and gray skies will figure in our future. Wanting to hang on to this waning season, I painted the piece I titled Illumined. It’s a celebration of the annual bloom of Balsamroot and Lupine wildflowers we experience in the Columbia River Gorge. It will be available to the public in the future, but I’m currently enjoying this exclamation of life in my home.
