Fall on the Housatonic (oil) by Polly Castor


This morning I cooled my heals north of here, while our youngest daughter was on a field trip. I took advantage of the time out of pocket and painted this lovely view of the Housatonic river in oil. I was attracted mostly by the sun filtering through the pinkish crimson poison ivy vines, contrasted against the light greenish blue of the slightly rippled water. It was a scrumptiously beautiful day to be outside painting.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
