Autumn in the Air
9 1/2" x 13 1/2"
"The main actors in this scene are the milk weed plants sending their
seeds adrift in the late fall breeze. The pods have an amazing amount of the reddish brown seeds packed into them. When
they split open, the fine filamented fuzz on the one end spreads like a parachute and is ready to travel on the wind. The
milkweed plants seem to thrive in old fence rows where they are fairly safe from the farmer's machinery so I've shown them
with an old weathered post and a bit of barbed wire being reclaimed by nature. Some rosehips and the glow still left in
some late October foliage help to complete the scene."
