In the Between

16 x 20
0il on canvas
This was painted from a photo I took in the late afternoon, in late summer, or else very early evening, in early fall.  The little surprise bursts of color and the contrasts of cools and warms and brights and shadows created a great image.  I started this with a plan to paint it as a companion to my painting "Sentinel", but followed my instincts to get loose with it.  It seriously flowed and the whole process was completed within a few hours, not my usual modus operandi.  I have to send out a big thank you to Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam for their great album, Ten. Turn's out to be perfect music to paint to.  And drive to, and belt out with in the shower.  Good music.
