When I meet people on the street here, they ask if I'm still painting. It's been over a month since I painted because I fell ill but I'm back, and just finished a painting I started what seems like long ago. In the meantime I've been thinking about this painting and after getting my strength back, I couldn't wait to get back to work on it.
'In the Company of Trees' was inspired by an early morning late summer visit to Haynes Point Provincial Park here in Osoyoos when the sun is lower, the skies are an unbelievable blue, the breezes are soft and cooler, and n the full sun, it still feels like summer but the changing of the leaves' colours indicates that fall is around the corner. Several years ago I wasn't painting in oil but I committed to painting more oils in 2019 and 2020 so I felt I could tackle the job of blending the season's hues on many leaves.
Oil on canvas 30 X 24 X 1.5" I hope you like it. If you have a question please contact me. Comments on my Guestbook page are always received with joy.
