Turning Leaves

Turning Leaves, L. Daniel, 8 x 6, oil on panel, SOLD


Fall color comes a little late to Austin, and it usually has a pretty short window before peaking and flaming out. It's best to keep painting gear in the trunk and be ever "at the ready" for the perfect confluence of color and light. Well, that happened last week and you can bet I was out there trying to capture the magic! Watching the leaves turn multiple shades of red, orange and yellow is a spectacular show that never gets old.

beautiful-all that color and yet subtle. I agree-Fall came with a burst of technicolor and disappeared just as quickly.

This scene is so reminiscent of the woods around my grand parent's house in rural Connecticut in the Fall... It's a perfect reminder of childhood. This painting needs to be MINE! Woohoo!

Of course you leave painting gear in your trunk - you're delightfully funny, practical and amazing.
Love the color in your painting. With so little of it in our landscape this year, I appreciate these bursts even more.
Wishing you and your family a joyful holiday weekend, Laurel.
