Sienna Glimpse

Sienna Glimpse, 48″ x 48″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

Sienna Glimpse is about the many subdued colors which autumn brings to the fields, crops, grasses, and bushes. They are stored in my mind and heart; but what pleasure I derive from seeing them in person when autumn brings them back to me once again. Many of the subtle nuances in this painting can be seen only (or much better, at least) in person, such as the slight appearance of a dark, warm purple. Yes, it’s really there, and is one of my favorite parts of this piece.

And it wouldn’t be autumn without the fireworks of the blazing trees of reds, yellows and golds. Those will undoubtedly make an appearance on my palette soon, for we are now approaching peak season here in the middle of Michigan!

Ahhh, you have to love autumn in all its glory!

Live Demo

In the studio

If you’d like to watch me wield these tools, I’ll be doing a live demo at LaFontsee Galleries on Dec. 8, from 12:00 – 4:00.

  • Three other LaFontsee artists will be demo-ing at the same time, so there will be much to see and absorb.
  • Also, a pop-up art boutique by six artists will be happening (jewelry, fiber arts, …).
  • And to top it off, in time for holiday shopping, LaFontsee will have small works available for sale by many of their artists, including yours truly.

Here’s a link to the Facebook Event.

If you are able to come, please make sure to say hi (and introduce yourself, if we’ve never met).

December will be here before we know it…YIKES!!

The beautiful pastels of blossoming trees have impacted me more this spring than ever before. This is my second painting of them, and maybe not my last.
