This little painting is taken from one of my favorite spots on the Tallulah River where the river takes an S-curve, almost as if it's circling back. It's one of the few places where the waters are quiet. At this time of year all the summer's foliage has gone, leaving only scant spots of green from the pines, firs, laurel and rhododendrun. This absence of greens allows the colors among the grays to become the stars. Looking more closely and without prejudice, you can see purples, blues, yellows, oranges, reds and yes, greens.
Think about it. We have a communal notion that grays are drab and depressing. But isn't that a prejudice that prevents us from seeing all the colors inherent in those grays? It all makes me wonder how much I have deprived myself from experiencing just because I approached things from an opinion rather than an open mind.
