"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.  Some see nature as all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all.  But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself..."   William Blake

Watercolor Painting ....  Mountain Autumn ......Painted  11 . 6 . 2014


"The summer-flower has run to seed, and yellow is the wooded bough;  And every leaf of bush and weed is tilt with autumn's pencil now.  And I do love the varied hue, and I do love the browning plain;  And I do love each scene to view, that's marked with beauties of her reign.........."  John Clare (from the Village Minstrel, 1821)
