(11) Honey Crisps

11 x 14” watercolor on paper - $75

July 30th. Mid summer growth. At first my attention was drawn to the bright apples that seemed out of proportion to the trees. As I painted I began to “dot” the leaves in a more abstract way, which then led to my eye moving more towards the grass. The grass slowly became flowing lines as my focus moved from thought to feeling of what I saw. This led to the decision of splashing yellow across the grass and trees. On reflection I suddenly realized that this experience was of great importance with my thought being less important than my feelings. As with my earlier works, I became lost in time, however, I honored my feelings and not just what I observed.
