Autumn Afternoon

Autumn Afternoon 8x10 oil

I started this painting last year and it was halfway done, but as fall turned into winter I lost interest in it and it went into the section of unfinished paintings. This past week I came across it while moving things around and put it out where I could see it.
This morning I was awake at 5:00am went out put the coffee on and put the painting on the easel and brought it to completion.
I like the warm afternoon light and the subtle shadows from the oak tree in the front yard.

Beautiful and warm colors , lovely autumn tribute. I love when I happen to get up VERY early ( rarely ) and start painting, when there is total silence around you :-)

Bravo! I love the way these have detail but are still cohesive in feeling tone and overall harmony. Very nice!
