Again, great season, sing it through again
Before we fall asleep, sing the slow change
That makes October burn out red and gold
And color bleed into the world and die,
And butterflies among the fluttering leaves
Disguise themselves until the few last leaves
Spin to the ground or to the skimming streams
That carry them along until they sink,
And through the muted land, the nevergreen
Needles and mull and duff of the forest floor,
The wind go ashen, till one afternoon
The cold snow cloud comes down the intervale
Above the river on whose slow black flood
The few first flakes come hurrying in to drown
..Howard Nemerov

A drift of wind, a flurry of snow, signals the end of October…
As the poet says"That slow change, that burns out red and gold", where leaves flutter on the branch, the last few hanging stubbornly in the “ashen wind”
…that’s Canada…

Watercolour on Arches Not Paper…best viewed large..

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
