Abundance, 9x12" Oil on canvas
©2013 Helen Read
I named this painting Abundance because the scene from which I painted this was overflowing with blossoms and foliage and -- well, life!
As I looked over the pond in the foreground, the flowering trees seemed to cascade toward the water and then the rose color spread toward me. All of it, even the scrubby parts of the shore were lovely.
It was as if the beauty and the life of the woodlands could not be contained!
