Yesterday" is part of the Fall Landscape Collection
The song “Yesterday” is one of my favourites and was the inspiration for this painting….my interpretation is not a literal one, but more about the feelings that the lyrics may engender….the song is so inspiring, and as fall is drifting away from us the first thing that came to my mind was that longing for it to last a little longer…the colours I instinctively chose were a blending of the fires of autumn and the cooler blues of winter…as it’s a memory, the image has been softened…..winter has come, frost is on the branches, and we reminisce about the beautiful autumn days that are no longer here…
Yesterday" is not for mourning, but for looking back at it’s joys, and looking forward to more…..it may be the winter of our lives or the end of a romance, but we all dream of Yesterday
Watercolour on Arches Paper…
Days I knew as happy sweet sequestered days.
Golden days, golden days,
Days of mad romance and love..
Joys were mine to take,
Joys were mine to give.
Free and gaily flaming life,
was mine to live.
Sad am I, glad am I,
For today I’m dreaming of,
For Irene Dunne fans… listen to her lovely, heartfelt, interpretation of Yesterday
