Oil on canvas, 48" x 36" gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides. Ready to hang.
Exhibited: Sorelle Gallery, Westport, Connecticut
After seeing the painting in the studio for a time, I decided that I wanted the oil to have more simplicity and a softer light. More trees were eliminated and the light is more subtle throughout the painting. Some of the colors were grayed down a bit and it actually enhanced the effect of the glow.
It was a surprising outcome but it was just the effect I was looking for. Greys are very important at times. As the painting progressed, a path began to form. It is nice to have it there, pointing the way to more good things to come.
