A new piece and a PROUD MOM! "Late Summer Aspen" original mixed media acrylic/paper collage © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "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 gold, gold yet where I was...So, I took that internal vision home and created this.  The size is large for me...2' 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

A VERY exciting event took place over the weekend in Philadelphia...The World Freestyle Skate Championships!  I am excited about this because my son competed in this contest as a freestyle skater...a most wonderful one at that!  I am SO proud and excited to announce that he was 6th in the WORLD in his division of freestyle skating!  His first huge competition...I am very PROUD of him and wanted to share this most exciting news with my blogger family!!  WAY TO GO JONATHAN!! (on the bottom here............................................................) that the fun is over...time to start a new piece!!  MORE FUN!!  Happy Creating all!!

Love the painting, and I would love to see it in its large format. I'm sure it is very striking in person.

Congrats to your son. 6th in the world is nothing to sneeze at (as we say in Texas!) How fun to see pictures of him performing.

Géante que cette peinture ! J'adore, j'adore... Toute cette belle lumière qui m'illumine m'incite à aller me balader dans cette forêt... Félicitations et félicitations à votre fils, quelle peur j'aurais!
