62 Late Bloom and Harvest (SOLD)

62 "Late Bloom and Harvest" 8x8 oil on panel, copyright Laura Gable
Dismayed today...
and that's ok,
the colors have a mind of their own--
leaning towards extreme, and a bit dark.
Autumn's sun is moving quickly today,
and my brush is moving slowly.

C'est la vie -- an attempt, though feeble,
is still making for a better day
than one spent counting beans
or counting cattle's legs and dividing by 4*...
and so it is what it is.

*reference to my old accounting jobs, and a friend's comment when I applied to do the books for a livestock company
(it didn't come about ... though I was an accountant, it seems, in another life).
