66 Wooded Path

66 "Wooded Path" 8x8 oil on board, copyright Laura Gable 
A wooded pathway that meanders around clustered trees and out to a clearing, makes one think of solitude and cool air. This little painting portrays the scene in a very impressionistic way. I am enjoying this movement towards a more painterly impression of these scenes (from yesterday's painting to today's).

I had a joyful afternoon sharing time with my artistic mentor, teacher and friend. She is closing her gift shop and studio and retiring after many years of diligent and attentive work. It's a bit nostalgic and melancholy to see this chapter closing, as I will miss our impromptu get togethers. Yet at the same time, I am excited to see what this new upcoming chapter of her life will hold--a very hopeful time. So with this autumnal season comes change in many forms.
