|Rio Grande Autumn 01 ~ 2011 ~ 8 x 10 inches ~ oil on canvas ~ copyright Dawn Chandler 2011|
Among the paintings being moved out are a several autumn scenes I painted late this past year and never got around to sharing here.. I had forgotten about them, and was rather charmed to find them again.
Anyhow, I like the sketchiness of this — that it was done quickly, without deliberating too much. The main masses of colors were made, and then just a few smaller details merely suggested. I like, too, that I left some of the stained canvas exposed — those patches of rust bleeding through.
