Behind the Canvas

Days after I painted this simple still life of the nasturtiums from my Alaskan garden, we had our first frost. I was so glad I had taken the time from my hectic schedule to enjoy the last of our summer light painting outdoors--gleaning the last of the summer's joyous rays before the coming darkness of our long winters.
