"Late Summer Aspen"
24" x 24"
MDF panel with 1 3/4" cradle sides
What a few days this has been! Coming home from the Steamboat area with visions of aspen dancing around in my head...chomping to put them into a visual rendition of what I was inspired by. As always, when I see the aspen changing I am so struck by color...the vibrant color...contrasts of the aspen trunks against the darkness of the trees and land...and the blue blue of the sky peeking in here and there behind the foliage. This year I saw a lot of mix...some green, some yellowy...no gold, gold yet where I was...So, I took that internal vision home and created this. The size is large for me...2' square...my arms reach up and down a lot! But, still fun! It just takes a bit longer with the larger space to cover. This time as I was driving home with hubby dear I was struck by the darks at the base of the trees, but when I inspected further I saw horizontal layers of rock and such...thus working horizontal in the background of this piece. If you want to see this in person come visit the Aar River Gallery during the month of October where I will be hanging as a guest artist! The opening reception is October 1 6-9p.m...OR if you have a desire to delve into the world of collage in some innovative ways you can sign up for my workshop at the Aar River Gallery on October 15-16...yes, it takes two days to show you all I want to and to work on your own collage!! Just contact the Aar River Gallery for details or me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SO...now that the fun is over...time to start a new piece!! MORE FUN!! Happy Creating all!!
