Autumn is in the Air

The temperatures are dropping. I have to have my headlights on for my morning drive to work now.  The other day my windshield was covered in morning dew.  Even here in the valley some of the trees are starting to turn golden.  Yep, it's that time of the year when we get relief from the summer heat and nature starts to put on her annual color show.  While the trees are still mostly green around here right now I couldn't resist doing a small autumn painting.

But then again it doesn't seem to matter what time of year it is I can always find the motivation to paint a fall scene.  This painting was painted mostly with a palette knife and then finished off with brushes for a variety of rich textures.  I'm certainly in a fall mood now!


  1. Just catching up on a lot of your paintings from the summer. I especially like the ones where you've used the palette knife. Nice pieces, especially this one.
