"Autumn in the Wind" 48x36, Oil on Canvas
Finished this big painting today after several weeks. I wanted to get at the feeling of the wind in the leaves as the light is starting to deepen into dusk.
Here is Texas we are starting to see the magic of Autumn. The leaves are beginning to change and the air is cooler. The old trees in my neighborhood are still green but every day I see some differences. On every walk I take I find a new beauty.
I referenced an old Sycamore with it's peeling bark and pointy leaves. I've always loved how Sycamore trees have limbs that relax, almost as if they are begging you to climb.
