September

I'm starting this month with some new fall colors on my palette; reds, and purples and siennas.
This is a traditional pastoral scene complete with grazing sheep in the meadow. Currently on ebay here

I thought it wold be fun to try a simpler style of broad, energic brush strokes and edgier colors. The still life is from a photo ref on Different Strokes - unfortunately I didnt finish the painting in time for the exhibition.
The covered bridge is based on a photo I took of the Everett Road Bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley
If you would like to see more of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park I have posted many photos on Webshots. Most were taken while hiking or biking the trails:
