Under the Plum Tree

This morning I put aside my series of farm paintings to finish a piece that I started in the last week of August. It was the week my daughter left for college for the first time. The end of summer always makes me wistful but there was extra thoughtfulness this year in the dried grasses, fallen fruit and cloudy weather.  

A couple of years ago I painted a small piece with similar feelings called "August Breaks My Heart".

"Under the Plum Tree" measures 18x24 inches.
