I love this time of year….Yes, I say that every day. But truly, there’s nothing like fall colors, so painting this arrangement of leaves and blooms was particularly enjoyable. It’s nice to have a setup that keeps the light consistent. And because of the light and subject matter, I can dig into my oil paints as they come out of the tube, bright and unabashed.
It’s too bad that the fall colors last only a few weeks. In fact we are expecting rain tonight that will likely knock the remaining bright leaves off the trees. Soon we will have the duller darker colors of winter and I may have to go to the snow country to get some cheerful subject matter.
