Nature's Fireworks, 2020
16 x 20 x 2 in
I love to step out and explore nature while seeking beauty all around me. You never know what you might find as you slowly explore. A gentle breeze on my face, birdsong nearby, leaves moving softly overhead. And then I spot her, a riot of color bursting forth out of the darkness, a vibrant early morning gift seemingly just for me. What joy and excitement, a sense of experiencing nature’s perfect fireworks. Such intricacy of color, a stunning range from orange to red, fuchsia, magenta, and pale pink. The light so strong, shadows so deep, I know immediately I must paint these vibrant ladies, and capture them for all of time!
