September on the San Miguel

September on the San Miguel, Telluride, Colorado


“As a boy I would spend endless hours often by myself, exploring the lakes and rivers near my home. The sweet smell of decaying autumn leaves on the ground bring back a flood of memories. I had this experience again when searching the location for this painting along the San Miguel River in Southern Colorado. The river has a slight greenish glacial tint that makes it especially beautiful. I remember as a child staring down into the river to study the rocks below and look for the patterns of the currents. Sometimes I would toss a leaf or a stick into the water to watch where the current would take it. I have included a few such leaves in this painting.”
