Drawing inspiration from the low autumn sun. This time of year can bring a sense of melancholy. I also get excited for the massive hours of studio time ahead. I am leaning into the season and finding some magic for my work.
This painting truly has a haunting feeling in person. Part of a series I am working on inspired by the lake shore and the season.
I was happy to learn that this big painting sold through Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. It was inspired by a late season boat ride last fall… the approaching winter always breaks my heart a little. Much to love about the dark season, solitude and painting… still it always brings a little extra melancholy.
Rain and fall leaves, I had an unexpected urge to represent the season.
