You may remember I got an inexpensive macro lens for my phone camera. I’ve been taking lots of photos. I have been excited to be able to close in on forms and shapes like these milkweed pods.
I took the photo in October at the Dixon Meadow Preserve in Flourtown, PA. If you want to see a full account of my visit to this peaceful place, visit the post at my personal blog at Sometimes You Get So Confused.
This painting was made in July, 2020. Acrylics, 20″ x 16″.
This year has made me value the outdoors more than ever. Gardens, backyards, trails, woods: all of them have been companions and calm places for me. That is what this painting is talking about – I marvel at the healing a day, even an hour, outside can do for me.
