Morning Light

Morning Light
Originally uploaded by linfrye
Sneaking quietly out the back door to walk the short distance to the garage yesterday morning to feed the kittens, this morning light greeted me and made me stop in my tracks to watch the sun 'light up' my woodlands. The painting itself isn't as vivid and is a far paler yellow than this is showing on my monitor this morning, but I had the dickens of a time trying to get the greens, blues and yellows to balance from my scan and more closely represent the painting. Still, the woods were backlit with clear, bright sunlight and one tiny shrub was almost white in the dazzle. Sure made getting up early and facing the cold worthwhile! LOL

We're off again today to the State Fair to take in the horticulture exhibits, so I'll be away from the computer until either late tonight or tomorrow morning ... I can't remember fall being as busy last year! LOL

It's VERY cold today - in the mid 30s ... figures we'd be outdoors this cooler week instead of last when the temps were in the 70s! LOL

Despite the big amount of trees, the painting looks fresh and has an appealing atmosphere. Kinda mystic as well. Great grass in the foreground, great trees, ...well, great everything. Beautifully painted.
