light of the full moon
shines through coloured leaves
at last … autumn

raindrops pelting colored leaves (mine)

a squirel runs through
ground cover of fallen leaves
in his mouth a small bulb.       (Mine)

I thought I would take this opportunity to learn a little more about art/artists/painters/paintings and master works than I do know.

Ottis Adams was an American impressionist painter and member of the Hoosier Group of Indiana painters. He spent his youth in Franklin, Shelbyville, and Martinsville, Indiana and attended Wabash College for two years. Born: July 8, 1851, Johnson County, IN  Wikipedia

Impressionism and American painters – I did not necessarily put the two together.

reflecting heaven on earth

luminous lighting


winding light – a blend

heaven gently kissing earth
