JUST DON'T HESITATE TO EXAGGERATE COLOR AND LIGHT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT TELLING LIES. THE MOST TIRESOME PICTURES ARE THE STUPIDLY TRUTHFUL ONES - Wm Merritt Chase

I've been obsessed with fall colors lately, perhaps because that's what I'm seeing out my studio window...though right now there is fresh snow falling on the autumn leaves. This little piece is an 8" x 8" oil on a gessoed panel. It was difficult to photograph. The colors here are not 100% accurate but it is this intense. Perhaps I'll do a larger piece using these colors for the show in Charleston in February.
Traveller is a gift for the couple who are generously providing a home for me while at the Waterfowl Festival. I liked it so much I painted a companion to it, Into the Mystic, which will be available at the show.
