Vine and Bramble (detail)

While I've been going through some things at my mother's house, I've come across reams of my drawings from art school days. Here's a painting of seed pods brought in from a field I've now forgotten, years ago, in another autumn.

Susan, it's timeless. Just as beautiful as your work is now. Beautiful shapes and rich, harmonious color!

A lovely piece...wonderful to come across some of this old work which still holds up on its own.

Thank you, Maggie and Mary. I've done a few other paintings with this type of seed pod--I can't think now what it's called, but I like its delicate form. I'll have to go out in our meadow when I get home, and look for some more of these vines.

It certainly IS timeless. I love the combination of positive and negative painting here. It's beautiful!
