“Distant Aspen”, Oil/Linen, 11×14
|I continue to make progress as I prepare for my January show. I haven’t come up with a great name…So for now, it will be the “Autumn Colors Show”. Yuck…I know. Let me know if you think of something better.I typically start with small plein air studies, and then work up. These two are 11x14s, and I’m working no two more 20x24s. There are a LOT of images of Aspens, perhaps too many. I also have some great sand dunes with red ivy from the Asilomar series. Since those were done in Fall and represent those colors, they’ll fit in this next show to counter-balance the Aspens.
I am having trouble finding time to paint, now that I’m temporarily working full time. I hope to finish the large works on weekends and the dead work week between Christmas and New Years.
The nice thing is I’ve already had collectors ask if they can buy some of these works before the show. I can spare a couple, but I do need to keep a quality group for the gallery.
Well, as always, if you’d like to share your impressions of these series, shoot me an email.
