There is something about flight that is magical, especially when we observe it in nature. Seeing this bird stretch wings to take flight was a mystical moment that I wanted to capture. It’s not as easy as you might think to catch that instant just before taking flight.

This painting celebrates the beauty we experience each year as summer comes to an end in a riot of colors as nature paints the trees with yellow, gold, orange and vivid reds and pinks. It has taken all the colors in my palette of reds and yellows to portray a snapshot of this fall season. The sound of wind-rustled leaves and the scent of burning leaves are embedded in this painting along with all the visual information you see here.

Chinese Lanterns

Lantern Plant: Physalis alkekengi 7” x 5” (17.8cm x 12.7cm) acrylic on gessoed canvas panel unframed with free shipping within USA and Canada.

This plant looks like the red lanterns seen everywhere on the streets of China. I'm always interested in the contrasts of textures, particularly the wood textures in the wall behind the plant. While it does not have a light inside, the Chinese Lantern or Japanese-lantern plant does have a berry inside that has been used for it's medicinal value but it is said to have some strong side effects so don't try eating it. It's an interesting plant that will spread rapidly once it has taken root.
