"The Turning of Autumn in Yosemite Valley" is another intense study I did of Hudson River Valley master artist Albert Bierstadt. All of the HRS masters concentrated very much on the light and the effects it has on producing the mood and atmosphere of the work. I too with my art am concerned with... does it produce the "right kind" of mood in the viewer. I take this as a very serious responsibility. Let me know what it produces in you by leaving a comment. I would love to hear from you! ~Connie
"Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him." ~ 1 John 5:1

I love pretty sunrises and sunsets, and I love the water. I strive to create paintings that will lift the spirit and soothe the soul. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I enjoyed painting it! ~Connie
"These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." ~ John 14:25-27

It's early morning. The sun is still coming up, sky is blue and the morning fog is still wafting through the trees. The dew glistens on the leaves from the morning light and autumn is welcoming you to take a refreshing morning walk and enjoy her beautiful, cheerful and colorful autumn foliage ~Enjoy!
"The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the the hills, and they smoke. I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord." ~ Psalm 104:31-34

This lively work pictures view at the edge of some windy waters as autumn heads out with the last splash of vivid colors. The whitecaps of the waves adds interest and contrast to the vertical trees and their brightly colored leaves. ~ Enjoy!
