The paintings in this series are of the Ogden Valley during the month of November. I LOVE this time of year, where the naples and ochres whisper quietly but powerful! This particular series is less about the trees than it is about the layers of land and the soft palette. They are painted on a gessoed hardboard surface with much paint and a palette knife to push the abstract feeling I am looking for. My plan is to recreate them in a much larger size, softer and on linen. We shall see what we shall see!
