Patch of Sumac
Oil on Canvas www.stageone.adahost.com
Patch of Sumac represents the feelings I can experience on an afternoon walk during an Indian Summer afternoon. I can feel the warmth of the red clay in the summer heat, hear the noise of the insects at this time of year, smell the maturity of the grasses and leaves. This painting has a companion piece and both represent that slightly melancholy and wistful sense I can feel in late summer.
