|"MilkPod Bursts" by C. Twomey, 8 X 10" oil on linen board|
Auction currently in progress at Daily Paintworks.
One of those unforgettable, golden days of fall in Vermont; or everywhere. At the end of the garden, in front of a field of grasses was a proud milk pod. It had just released it's seed treasure and the backdrop of the gorgeous trees was irresistible. It was a still, warm, sunny day and I was able to paint for hours to capture the details. There was a light mist over the distance mountains and the trees were at their peak. This is almost a still life combined with a landscape that serves as a document of time standing still.
Thank you for your interest!
