I took this photo last week when we had our first snowfall. The fall leaves scattered on the snow struck me as unexpected and beautiful--a moment of the transition from fall into winter caught and held. There is a bit of wonder and mystery in the image.
Maybe it also caught my eye because interesting juxtapositions are something I aim for in my paintings. Separate images side by side bring each into sharper focus. Similarities and contrasts are both apparent, and the imagination is invited in to complete the gestalt.
