I am fortunate to be surrounded by the beauty of nature. I wonder if I am the only one who sees the beauty in a wildflower, the ruby velvet of a scarlet leaf and the purple shadow there.
It is the unusual beauty, the brilliance of the light, its effect on color I wish you to see. I might say, to you, "See how that shaft of light turns the leaf a blinding yellow and how the cobalt blue rages underneath."
While I do work from my imagination (I have painted for decades and am able to recall light and color from memory) quite a bit, I am never without a subject as you can see above.
