CRESTED BUTTE ASPEN

2013-10-05 12.02.02-2

A visit to the Rocky Mountains in the Autumn is absolutely wonderful.  My inspiration for my canvasses usually come from the things I see in nature.   In this case the inspiration is from the Aspens that I see in the Rocky Mountain National Park.  Thus the name CRESTED BUTTE ASPEN.  This acrylic mixed media painting is on a 30 x 40 gallery wrapped canvas.  It has lots of texture, charcoal and acrylic paints.

CHEROKEE AUTUMN SUNRISE

2013-10-04 15.25.08

This acrylic mixed media painting is titled:  CHEROKEE AUTUMN SUNRISE.  It is on a 30 x 40 gallery wrapped canvas.  The inspiration for this painting came from nature.  It’s autumn and when I visit Tennessee in the autumn I see colors like this.  Sunrise in Tennessee this time of year can look like this beautiful red-orange color.  The inspiration from the left of center whites came from a visit to the waterfalls I visited in the Cherokee Forest at Benton Falls Tennessee.
