Can you feel it? That crisp coolness in the morning, the rustle of the breeze, fall is settling in. Just like clockwork the Liquid Ambers over at the farmers market have started to turn and I am happy that summer is starting to say it’s adieu.
That is why I love the beginning of September a time of transition from the hot humid summer to the coolness of fall, and a new color pallet for me. Since the Liquid Amber is the first tree to herald in this time of year I thought it appropriate to paint it. It is also the harbinger of the busiest time of year for me as a local artist. Just one month from the Prescott Area Artists Studio Tour. I am busy in the studio painting so you all have a fresh supply of beautiful art to see.
I love this new piece because of the beautiful contrast between the orange and purple, two complimentary colors. You know me and my love of purple, it is my new neutral. Purple goes with many of the colors I choose to paint with. A bit of purple in a painting is a wonderful thing…
I hope you are all out there enjoying this wonderful time of year. To find this painting and many more visit my Galleries.
Hope to see you at the Studio Tour Oct. 5, 6, & 7.
