Finally the autumnal equinox has arrived and I for one am thrilled. It is my favorite time of year. So out come the fall colors and switching out my wardrobe to cozy and warm sweaters, jeans and boots. It was natural that yesterday’s painting would have me gravitating to the above colors. Yet I did not paint them in the traditional way with colorful leaves. I instead chose to make the sky and water brilliant orange and yellow, a juxtaposition of what you might normally see. I like it, it makes the painting more dramatic, bold and screaming for you to look at it.
I am sure that in the coming days I will use more of this color combination and you may see me painting in oranges, purples, red and golds during the Studio Tour the first weekend in October. I paint the seasons, and moods of my life here in the Southwest, and that will demand this color pallet.
Creating a world of Autumn, one painting at a time…
