OCTOBER MORNING

THROUGH AN ARTIST’S EYES

 

I’m so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers.

Lucy Maud Montgomery was a Canadian writer whose series Anne of Green Gables, about an orphan living on Prince Edward Island, still attracts a readership more than a century after its publication in 1908.  Willard Metcalf (1858-1925) is ranked as one of the leading American Impressionists; although he created landscapes for every season, his autumn scenes of  the New England countryside are especially moving.
