I finally completed the painting "Autumn Maples" , 18x36, and have added it to the "New Pieces" page. It seems that I usually use a vertically oriented canvas for forest scenes, but this is an exception. The arrangement of leaves across the textured tree trunks seemed to call for a horizontal or "landscape" depiction. I have two more autumn paintings to complete from this past season as well as a summer forested stream. With two commissions to complete along with a seascape or two, I have a variety of paintings in the works. I hope to complete some of these before winter's snow arrives.
