The colors of Autumn are warm, rich and beautiful. I don't often paint abstracts but when I do I really enjoy them. The inspiration for this one came from a photo of trees reflecting onto a still lake. The Fall colors were so rich and vivid and the pattern they made on the water stirred my creative mind.
I created this painting for the 2010 "Patchwork Puzzle Show", a fundraiser for the Chico Community Labyrinth project. All artists were given plywood broads in three different sizes to create a piece of work. I covered my boards with a linen fabric then added a layer of gesso before painting them. All three of my pieces sold.
The original painting is in a private collection in Chico California.
