"Fallen" - a lovely fall scene with brightly colored foliage and birch trees
This was my first acrylic painting in 30+ years. It is done on Rives BFK Printmaking paper, which I love, and was so much fun to do. I just basically let myself play and enjoy the way the colors and textures came together. The scene is from a photo of my neighbor's yard. The fallen tree had been there for many years. They recently removed it. I have always wanted to paint it and this was the perfect opportunity. I added the birch trees as practice for another project I'm working on. This painting is being donated to a charity auction to benefit a children's hospital and several other worthy causes. It is framed under glass in a lovely walnut frame.
