no fish

Yellow Leaves in Silhouette; casein on board; 10" x 8"

The day was one of those magnificent crisp October days when the last of the leaves are putting on their final display. 

There were a lot of passersby at the easel - taking peeks - and offering kind comments.  One little boy in particular stands out.  He was sweetly impressed with my progress and told me so.  I thanked him and remarked at what a gorgeous day we had and how lucky we were.  He looked at me and said, "But there were no fish today."  I felt for him - he seemed truly disappointed.  Not really knowing what to say I told him that it was too bad there were no fish.  He shrugged - and left - taking it all in stride.
