the end of summer

The empty Adirondack chairs is my homage to the end of summer, now that Labor Day has come and gone, kids are back in school and vacationers are back to work.  Our little New England town has definitely become more quiet and the locals are deciding when they should pull their boats out of the water.  I'm starting to wear sweatshirts and socks again, as the temperature and humidity is falling back into an early autumn crispness.  I'll be looking forward to living around fall color again - and anxious to paint images of the town covered in snow.
