GLIMPSE OF GOLD
"Glimpse of Gold"
Oil 11 x 14
I was in a hurry one morning, on my way into
Carlisle for an appointment when I saw these
sugar maples in all of their golden glory. All I
could think about was that I hoped I could get
a picture of them on my way home, and I
prayed the whole time I was in the doctor's
office that when I got back to the scene the
light would be the same.
I was lucky on two counts - I always carry
my camera with me, and my appointment
was very short so I was able to get some
great photos with the light just as I had wanted.
This is the first of two paintings that I hope
to do from that experience.
