Chasing Fall's Colors

Been working on a painting these past couple afternoons, chasing the colors of Autumn before they disappear.

Here's the painting at the lay-in stage.


Here it is after another afternoon of work, after I brought it home:

Those look like very happy trees, Ben. I would love a painting like that for my office.

Well, I _was_ planning on trying to sell it. It's one of the better landscapes I've done, but these are all very poor photos (the last one in particular is full of streaks).

Feel free to send me an email if you're interested.

Awesome! and those aren't streaks… that's texture!

What I really like about that painting is that it's got the contrast of an ink drawing. It really makes the foliage pop.
