Falls and meadow, by Shirley Deane/Midyett

“Falls and Meadow” (detail)
From her imagination

By Vic Midyett

Shirley’s latest.
    I wasn’t certain she was finished with it yet. I thought she was, but she kept studying it, and that is sometimes an indication she’s about to change something. When I asked her, she said that the little additions she wanted to make would be small and probably wouldn’t be consciously noticed anyway.

  1. My first association upon seeing this painting was of the New Zealand landscapes of Peter Jackson's Hobbit movies. Shirley could be a portraitist of nations! "Portraitist"? Yes! From Merriam-Webster: "Definition of portraitist : a person who paints or draws portraits."

  2. She says, "thanks to you cus". And of interest to Morris, interestingly, neither of us has seen the"Hobbit". Thank you both for your supportive comments.
