Autumn Edge

Autumn Edge
6 x 8, oil
Sold

Mom and I went out to Kettle Moraine Forest today for some plein aire painting. It was a beautiful drive out, the fall leaves and colors are just starting to come out. After a long summer it feels like we're finally on the edge of autumn. It was fun to throw some red sumac colors on the canvas, along with the (probably over the top) yellows.

This is what I was looking at...

  2. I came here from your Mom's blog, and I'm glad I did. This is a beautiful, spontaneous painting -- fall colours are supposed to be ove the top!
