Autumn Aspens

Autumn Aspens III
Original 66" x 30" x 0.75" painting - Three 22" x 30" canvases
Golden and Liquitex acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvases

Aspens are quite common in the West, and they light up the mountainsides in the Fall. People often make an annual pilgrimage of driving in the mountains on crisp Fall days to view the colors. This painting is part of my new decorative series, and this composition is one of my favorites to paint.

The giclee prints went out the door yesterday (yay!!) so I'm focusing on originals exclusively for the time being. My UK broker hopefully will be placing a large order in the coming weeks, so until that time I am going to paint like crazy on originals.
