Summer Sun into Autumn Sun
Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
This landscape was posted on Wed. It was done quickly and posted immediately thereafter. It was a summer scene and I felt it was devoid of life...just "blah".
I appreciate the input of my artist friends... Celeste Bergin and Pam Holnback. Please check out their fine blogs. They made several suggestions that I immediately recognized as true. I was merely temporarily "blinded" because of the freshness of the work.
For one thing, I am presently surrounded with fall colors and my muse just didn't want to tackle so much summer green. So I re-worked it into an Autumn landscape.
I'm happier with it now...but, of course (as always), there remain areas in question.
