Falling Blossoms

We’ve had several days of rain here in Bear River and everything is lush. The leaves are still that pale green that spring brings.

I sat in the studio today and listened to a wonderful CBC podcast interview with composer Philip Glass while I painted this scene out of the window. There were many examples he gave about his musical experiences that I could relate to in terms of painting.

It was an afternoon of bliss to paint this scene and to hear Glass talk about how he too is inspired by Nova Scotia landscape.

Here is Metamorphosis from Philip Glass. Sometimes I listen to it while I’m painting.
