Optimistic Fall 04


Size: 46X46 cm | 18.1X18.1 in


Through this painting, Morris explores the contrast between autumn (fall) and optimism. For Morris, the fall represents an end, leaves drying up and falling to the ground.

He mirrors nature using bright colors for the falling leaves to encourage the “mood of the tree” reassuring that the end of one thing is the beginning of something new, creating a positive outlook for the future.
