"FALL ASPEN" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA OF ASPEN IN FALL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

12" x 25" mixed media on cradled panel
$400 
This is a re make of an earlier painting that was called "Aspen in Orange and Blue". It is true that if an artist has a painting long enough it may go back on the easel...that is the case for this painting.  Although it was OK as it was...full of strong color, I felt this particular painting was TOO strong, and the bright color coupled with it's size was overpowering the aspen; which were the star of the show.  It always felt a little strong to me so I reworked it to this piece that is much better for showing off my most loved aspen!
original verison of "Aspen in Orange and Blue"
 
I left the side color the Red Mahogony color it was as it compliments the shadows of the aspen nicely.  I will be taking this to my gallery in Louisville the end of the month (Creations Art and Gifts) if you want to see it in person.
It's been a busy time in the studio as I am working to frame and paint the last things I will be taking with me to the open house art sale I am hosting with my friend Susan Gordon. Follow this LINK HERE  and scroll down past the texture examples to see the details. I'm bringing what I haven't yet sold of my ETSY shop as well as some other pieces. It should be a fun time...and is a great opportunity to purchase art at "cleaning out my studio" prices in many cases!!
 
HAPPY CREATING!!

Il doit être difficile de prendre l'initiative de retoucher une peinture. bravo !
Gros bisous Saundra.

I thought it was pretty before but after the rework, I have to admit it is even more beautiful. I just love it!
