SOLD- Portrait of a Tree-Autumn, Acrylic on Paper, 6.5"x6.5"
This painting was a stretch on several levels. I started with an idea - I wanted to capture the essence of a tree in autumn. What says tree? I decided I needed a trunk, some foliage, and an anchor to the earth. Next I needed to figure out how to design that to get that core identity without getting detailed. Then I had to decide what I wanted for a look - I decided to go for a fractured technique with palette knife, and keep it as abstract as I could. The colors, I think, say, "Autumn." I am pleased with the result.

I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
