This painting was made a short time after my Dad and soon after, my Mom passed away this year. I was mesmerized by the way Brandywine River receaded around a bend. A tree had its roots nearly bared, and was leaning into a “V”. Yellow color domination is highly spiritual to an artist. Green pastures just this side of still waters. Oil on canvas, 24 x 36, (unframed.)
