painting in progress titled summers end sparkles

"Summer's End Sparkles" phase 2
Oil - 26 x 40
When I got back to this piece this last October, I had a surprise wating for me. The level of the creek was lower, more fallen leaves had accumulated, and it had apparently been a very good year for moss. I quickly decided that I liked the new look a lot. So I had to spend more time "reworking the coastline" than I expected, but I felt it was well worth it. The time of the piece also made itself more evident as being between Noon and 12:30. Next year I am pledged to get back to this piece earlier, and I'll share its progress again then.
