The canvas depicts a veranda that is showered with withered leaves. It’s sad and lonely to say goodbye to summer, and the picture is filled with farewell and tight.
The artist captures the corner where the table and bench are located, surrounded by a side. All this is copied from real objects. On the table is a vase of glass, and in it are flowers, yellow, like autumn itself. Judging by the appearance and well-groomed veranda, the house is large and welcoming, tidy. Decent people live in it.
Immediately it seems a large family with running kids, who now and then scurry back and forth, amusing adults. Everyone is sitting, talking, and someone may be laughing. But it was yesterday ... when it was still summer, and today - the dreary autumn took its rightful place. Ladies and gentlemen are introduced in beautiful evening toilets - dresses with hats and frock-coats with tuxedos.
But today it became cold - and in the picture the leaves fluttering in the wind are clearly visible, yellow-red. They are the messengers of change and the coming winter. Apparently, early autumn, since the sun is still stubbornly trying to warm the ground, but no one is leaving the lonely veranda, no one is laughing and discussing the latest changes and news.
The sun's rays penetrate the benches, the table, the same vase and flowers, which also tend not to dry soon. nothing lasts forever ... There is no point in resisting and people living in this huge house know about it and accept autumn with its cold days, endless rains and the distant sun.
Or maybe the residents of a beautiful house just went to the park for a walk? Therefore, they are not visible on the veranda ... Although, it is unlikely, most likely they are just waiting for spring to come out as an ants from a warm and cozy house to enjoy the new sun - so warm and clean. The picture evokes a little sadness and some kind of anxious expectation of change.
