Who Turned Fauvist Painters Loose at the Creek?


One of the most prolific artists of all time nature! These stunning images were captured by another prolific artist our dear friend Catwoods. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images with us Cat!

We walked through the forest down to the creek in glaring sunlight and, yowie, it looks like Les Fauves have been there, painting over parts of our fall creek scenery. We spooked ’em, they must have dropped loaded brushes and palettes full of paint into the water before vanishing from plein air into thin air. All the great colorists throughout history; Matisse, Derain, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Gauguin, to name a few.

soft-flower-dew
