Autumn, View from Studio

This small painting 8x10 was done in honor of Artist's Day which is Monday. It is a multilayered painting and it began with leaves collected on a walk around home. I pasted the leaves to get texture and then I put pastels and acrylics to finish it and give the feeling of Fall as I look at it through my studio window and really all through the house windows.

They Are Gone Now

I just completed this painting and may publish another photo of this painting. It took a while to get the desired effect. I started with a loose wet in wet background and after a day or two applied the cheese cloth which I secured to the support with matt medium diluted.I painted some of the rose colors and colors some ink on the cheesecloth. After a few days I applied more paint,darks with indigo and then just played with it till I got the painting. The title is a bit elusive as is the painting. Perhaps a distant memory of some flowers. Mixed media. 16x20.
