Autumn's Last Dance
Original watercolor by Tim Myrick
13" w X 19" h
This painting captures a moment in time at one of my cherished local nature preserves. Each time I enter this area, I am surrounded by the pure sights and sounds of nature, and I can feel my breathing slow and my blood pressure drop.
I am also reminded of my youth growing up in North Florida – in spite of the many differences in terrain and the spectacular seasonal color changes. I lived in a very remote, heavily wooded area with lots of springs and ponds, and of course I spent most of my free time hanging out in the woods and fishing in a creek that reminds me of this one.
When we’re not working in or enjoying our own garden, my wife Louie, and I take frequent walks. We often talk about how very fortunate we are to live so close to Lake Erie, as well as acres of unspoiled nature.
I hope you enjoy the image of my painting. As always, your impressions and questions are very welcome.
