'Sumac No.1'

original art


goldenrod, watercolor, pastel on paper


This original work on paper was created in collaboration with the woods on a fall day when the sun gave only quick shy glimpses through the clouds. The bold washes of pigment overlap and intertwin in an almost endless constellation of color. The image takes its name from sumac plants, which produce bright red fuzzy “berries” in late summer and bright red leaves in late fall. These berries serve as an important food source for native wildlife through the winter. The painting too, invites the viewer to feast on rich color, even as winter approaches.


This piece is part of the series “Of September.” In the colder days, when things are a bit more difficult, the memory of September keeps us going when we need it most. All original works in the series include some hand-made pigment from goldenrod plants which were harvested at the height of their bloom. The paintings in this series serve as a reminder of nature's most bountiful and generous season.Please consider measurements carefully before purchase and take the time to view colors on different monitors, as colors may appear different on different devices.
