the muse and the love and sympathy of a friend

The lake continues to be my muse. It's amazing how quickly her moods have changed during our autumn storms.
I have been reading  An Ideal Country, the wonderful book about Dwight William Tryon's work, I love his subdued tonalist beauties that are well represented in DC's Freer  Gallery of Art. You can check out the treasure trove of images on their website. They own both large oils and smaller, even more beautiful pastels. When you have time go to their site. I leave you with a quote.
Dwight William Tryon described Art as "love and sympathy with some near and homely thing."4
