This painting of an opening in the sky in the center of a circle of autumn trees is simple, elegant and clean.
At first glance, it has a pleasing radial symmetry and a calming effect.
When you look closer, you will notice the many irregularities in the organic shapes, each tree unique, reaching out its branches, dancing up in the sky.
The branches are tiny and delicate in the distance.
The last of the autumn leaves, in shades of brown, red, yellow and orange, hang at the ends of twigs, about to blow off into the blustery sky.
In this painting, I capture the excitement of the change of seasons, and also the soft, warm feeling of light.
