"Sun-dappled Path"

This original painting (image size 15" high  x 11" wide) is watercolor on 100% rag paper..

This painting was inspired by the memory of isolated roads in Central Texas.  When I was a child, one of my aunts lived on a farm near New Braunfels, Texas. Her home was at the end of a gravel road. The dappled shade along this path reminds me of those carefree visits in my childhood.

A friend told me that this reminds her of the rural area of South Carolina where she lived as a child.

It also resembles the road to Kathy's home, about ten miles from Natchez, Mississippi, as it was years ago when my husband and I went to visit for the first time. The road has been broadened and paved since then.

As our world becomes more modernized, these rural areas are disappearing. Soon they will exist only in our memories.

I disregard all evidence of people in my paintings. I prefer to emphasize the natural beauty that I see or remember. Perhaps one of my paintings evokes a treasured memory for you. If so, I hope you will share that memory with me.
