August brings into sharp focus and a furious boil everything I’ve been listening to in the late spring and summer.” –Henry Rollins

And for the painter, August is when we get relief from the un-ending green that over powers the landscape and anesthetizes our senses.

Over Taraden Fields - watercolor plein air landscape painting by Tony ConnerBy “Lughnasadh” (the cross-quarter day in August that marks summer’s halfway point) the landscape has begun to change it’s look.  When you look close, you can see signs of September in both color and light.  Late summer blooms make their appeal to bees and insects in bold yellows, and grasses shake off their exuberant brilliance with subtle golds, blues and olives.  A riot has broken out from drowsy monotony!

Painting is 7 1/2″ x 11″, mounted and matted to 11″ x 14″ for easy, low-cost framing.
