I don't spend much time working in the studio on paintings that were begun outdoors, but I really liked this painting of yellow fall color that I'd started in October (the small picture is the way it looked two months ago). Working in the studio, you have to ask what the painting needs, as I have nothing other than my memory and the idea I was going for to work with. I knew I wanted to reduce the impact of the rocks in the front and lead into the leaves and sky area.
There will be a part 3, stay tuned.

I have work on display in two venues right now -- one, a piece is in the Yellow Barn Gallery member's show. It's a juried show and the 100+ pieces on display are truly inspiring. The gallery is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12 - 5, 7300 MacArthur Blvd. through December 21.
At the Edgemoor Club, the holiday decorations include 14 of my landscape paintings. It's hit or miss whether you'd find the club doors open if you wanted to peek, but the club is at 7415 Exeter Road, Bethesda. 301-907-2961 is the phone number you can call to see about getting in.
