"Fall Foliage" 8" x 10" oil/c

Here's my second painting. This is one
of those plein air pieces that keeps you
awake at night. Not because it was a
difficult piece but because it was so simple.

Every stroke had a purpose. Every stroke
went down like it had a mind of its own.
Every stroke sat down perfectly next to
another. An in an hour, POOF...its done.

Then you lie awake that night wondering
why all other paintings are so difficult
and how the heck do you repeat the process?

Thanks Jennifer. The piece garnered alot of attention at the show last night. I don't if it was because of my piece or because it was hanging next to two Aspevigs.
