IMPRESSION

Today is a spectacularly beautiful fall day here in the Midwest, with Sugar Maples at their peak. Rain from the last couple of days caused all the Ash and Walnut Trees to defoliate, but the Sweet Gums, Oaks, Pears and most Maples are in full glory.

This little painting was created nearly two decades ago using lots of carefully painted miskit to preserve the whites of the Beech Tree so that the background could be painted with a spontaneous fresh and loose look. I do love trees. Enjoy the week, everyone:-)

The cool and warm colors are perfectly balanced and very pleasing to the eye. Trees are some of my favorite subjects too.

Beautiful tree painting.:) Love the use of complimentary colors in this! You certainly aren't afraid of bold color. Kudos to you for that as well.
