On my land, I have had the opportunity to live more deeply with each season than I have been able to in the past. I found that in addition to the familiar big rhythms, there are smaller movements, which further define and detail the atmosphere and natural processes. “Autumn Tides” is a painting depicting these passing notes. The golden aspens speak of the returning coolness of the late autumn. The yellows and whites against a turquoise sky means autumn is in its last throes.
