This was painted earlier this summer in a neighborhood of mostly older houses here in Colorado Springs.  I love painting in this area.  I sometimes spend too much time walking around the neighborhood and in the alleys before I paint.  I'm not sure that you can spend "too" much time walking around before a painting.  This time always helps me find a great subject matter, get a feel for what I'm painting, and helps me with the composition and light source.

I love the fall.  The colors are warm, glowing, beautiful.  It seems that no matter where you are autumn is a magical, colorful time.  The leaves are gone now from the aspens here in Colorado.

This plein air was done in September.  I had driven up to the nearby mountains to paint the yellow, gold leaves, but was drawn to the shadows and tree trunks.

In painting, and in life, it's good to be a bit flexible.

I'm not sure if this counts as plein air.  My plan that day was to paint outside....but, the wind prevented that.  So, I asked at this orchard if I could set up inside their produce area.  Maybe that makes this an alla prima still life.  What do you think?  Either way, I'm happy with the results.

Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery

I'm thrilled to have my painting, "In A Heart Beet" juried into the 1st annual "Passionate Color" Exhibit at Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery in Portland, Maine.

I met Susan Roux years ago through blogging.  She contacted me about the show.  It's exciting to have work some where far away where I'm not familiar with the art world.  The show hangs the month of October.  If you happen to be in Portland, Maine I hope you'll stop in to the gallery.
