When I get stuck or when I have difficulty with one media I switch to another. A year or so ago one of my daughters gave me a whole stack of ATC sized papers, including an assortment pack that included canvas. I don’t do many acrylic paintings but I did sell one last year. It was an impressionistic landscape that included our giant neighborhood oak tree. I decided to try an ATC sized acrylic with a big red maple as my subject. You probably remember that I am fascinated by the glowing oranges, golds and reds of the Indiana forests during autumn. Well here it is. I call it The Red Head at the End of the Road – big name for a little painting.

    How I love that! You captured the brilliant blazing colors and put just the right name on them too.

    Perfect name for an Indiana vision of fall!

  3. I picked the title with a smile on my face!

    Gorgeous. You’ve captured a perfect fall vision. Love the sky too.

      Thank you Carol. This is the color I see when I walk at Ft Be State Park each morning. So peaceful! I love it…

    You did all that on a tiny canvas? Incredible. I can do so little with acrylics. You rock!!!! I, also enjoy the look of large oaks in the fall. I look at a beauty out my kitchen window.

      Yes, this is one of the little ATC’s – very challenging for me since my abstracts are all half or whole sheets. I think that’s why I enjoy it – gives me a break from my “usual”. I seem to need that!

    A fascinating painting my friend 🙂

    How I miss those colors. Coastal Texas is green, grey, and brown with sky above. No autumn but what’s in my memory.

    It’s very nice. I agree that sometimes when you get stuck, it’s good to just do something completely different. I often find that halfway through the new project, I get inspiration for another architectural work because I can look my reference work with a new eye.
