This year I am learning to look at everything that marks the changing of the season, the leaves, the berries, and colors.
Before this year, I had never noticed the yellowish berries from a weed. They come from a silver-leaf nightshade plant, horsenettle, and because it has beautiful purple flowers I had allowed it to grow in my garden. During the summer I never got around to painting the flowers, so the berries have been a happy surprise and I loved how they added a bit of color to this composition.
Have you noticed anything new this year that marks the changing season?
UPDATE: Steve and I decided to keep this painting in our collection, we tend to select one painting a year to keep in our private collection. This way we also get to keep some of the best paintings for our own enjoyment also.
