It looks as if "treetops" will become a small series. I am enjoying the challenge of simplifying all the thousands of colored leaves into a pleasing design that works visually and also captures the impression of treetops so the viewer knows what she's looking at. These little paintings are deceptively complex and need to be approached as a purely abstract pattern first getting color, value and shape orchestrated before any though goes into details like trunks and branches to make them look like trees. I'm very absorbed in the painting process when I'm working on these... painting very intuitively.....great feeling for an artist, in the "zone" as they say. Look for more of these to document the change as the season progresses. Enjoy!
