“Farmstead in the Valley”

“Farmstead in the Valley” 9″ x 12″ Oil on wood $375

The color rich landscape,
it’s early fall.
A quiet rural road, breathtaking
Stop.
It’s hard to breathe

Engrossed in the magical display,
quaint buildings, wrinkled with time
I began to dream
Out loud.

The canvas before me.
In despair,
Waiting.
for the journey to begin

Rectangles and squares connecting
deep rooted lines
Colors.
Thick with emotion.  I painted.

Ardent strokes brush the surface.
In their haphazard way,
more beautiful than before.
Unexpected.

The landscape happening
all on it’s own – or so it feels.
Why all the bright colors she asks?

I don’t know
I reply
Its the farmstead in the valley.
