Inspired by the myth of Danaë, whom Zeus visited disguised as a shower of gold coins, I reinterpreted the Greek princess as the gentle, stooped woman walking along a path in a red and yellow autumn woods. As cool morning mist lifts, the bronzed and golden colors of autumn trees signal the break from summer's heat. Each year, I look forward to first frost, when fields sparkle and the morning sun shines silvery gold. The wind floats leaves from trees to fall to earth like gold coins. I call these my "Danaë Days" - days that remind me of Titian's painting of Danaë with the princess looking up at gold coins raining down.
