The Fall Palette

 "the constance of change", 32.5 x 30
It's fall in Seattle, and the colors outside are astounding. I just completed this painting of the changing seasons. It's amusing to me that the image I started with was taken in summer. As I painted, I found myself so influenced by my surroundings, that no matter how hard I tried to paint summer colors, my palette kept taking me into the golds and rusts of the moment.
This year I've added a new technique to my toolbox, which I think enhances the depth and color of the finished painting. It's impossible to show the results online, so I hope you'll come visit the gallery artist group show this December at Patricia Rovzar Gallery where you can see the new surfaces in person.
