Queen Anne’s lace and fall poplars

The color of a stand of poplar trees rises above the gray sea of dried Queen Anne’s lace. Autumn is a conflict of emotions. The celebration of life. The anticipation of death. Joy and sorrow intermingled. Bittersweet.

My eye sees this as a beautiful watercolor. I may have to try it!

Wanda, you are more than welcome to use any of my photos as a basis for one of your watercolors (I studied watercolor for a semester in art school a loooooong time ago and came to the conclusion that I don't have the patience for it, but I have a real respect for those who have gained proficiency at it). I'd love to see one.
