Painting - Oil On Canvas
It's early evening and the sun is gilding this landscape with alluring tones of Golden color. A single stone path winds its way among Evening Primroses and toward an abandoned home in its declining years. I call it "Primrose Path".
I find that not all Primrose Paths lead to calamity, great loss, or misfortune. Instead, I see a reminiscent beauty in the layers of peeling paint, weathering boards and rusting metal, the natural progression of the past assimilating with the present.
When I see a home and its surrounding grounds in this state of disrepair, I ponder their earlier years of sheltering their former occupants. It's easy for me to visualize the property as it perhaps once was: neatly manicured and with "All Its Ducks in a Row".
