Here is another autumn painting that was painted earlier in the fall season. Again, I have shown the enlargement in order to view the brush strokes and their texture or lack of texture. I feel that these strokes and/or their application are more abstract than in the previous painting, "Gone For The Winter". In spite of their abstactness, when viewed from a distance or viewed by "squinting", I feel that the strokes come together to form recognizable shapes or the impression of shapes. For example, trees, shubs, etc.
As my paintings continue to evolve, I have noticed a tendency to exagerate or to "animate" the colours ( as I like to think) and their values.
Enlargment from, "Cottage Road In Autumn"
