Fall sketches on site

Fall sketches on site in the National Forest.  

A beautiful spot on a low hillside overlooking the stream.  The sun would beam through the trees onto me and fill my soul with warmth and joy.  A quiet moment of time and space.
I travel light

My favorite spot.  Just a couple of hours of sketching today.

Working quickly allows freedom and play

I started with gouache and added dry pigment and glaze(yellow)

This one was painted in just a few minutes.  I was trying to express the joy of the landAdd caption

Blue….the infinite

Ice crystals
Cold & deep waters
Fall is passed
And winter encroaches
Blue sky…infinite,
Moon shines
Over the mountain peaks
Like a melody
Lifeless remains of summer’s
Cries of nature
Earth’s deep silence

The Ship

The Ship

I am standing upon the seashore.  Aship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand and watch her until at length she is only a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky meet and mingle with each other.  Then someone at my side exclaims, :There, she's gone!
Gone where?  Gone from my sight, that is all.  She is just as large in hull and mast and spar as she was when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination.  Her dimmished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "She's gone," there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "There, she comes!"
And that is dying..................................UNKNOWN

Red & Light

More radiant than the Sun,
Purer than snow,
Finer than the ether,
Is the self,
The spirit in my heart,
This self I am; I am this self
.......Rudolf Steiner
