Like a tapestry. I look at a landscape's light and atmosphere and enjoy painting Autumn scenes because of the interplay between shadow and light. I was drawn to the depth and contrast of colors of these trees and punched up the color and hardened and softened various edges to draw the eye.
One of the most wonderful things is bringing a painting to someone's house and hanging it on their wall, and seeing the impact it makes to the room! Every once in a while I get the pleasure of doing this, but most of my works are shipped off to decorate your homes far away from me.
I always enjoy when you send me a photo of it hanging in your room and thank you for the many people who take the time to share!
