At the end of the summer as the plantings in my backyard became mature and colorful, I set out with my camera on a sunny afternoon. This painting was created from a portion of one of those images. This bush had spent the entire summer growing into it’s full beauty. I am so grateful that I was able to take the time to appreciate and capture it. Creating it is my way of sharing “that moment” with others who were not there to witness it with me.
