Description of Bittersweet October
The bittersweet mood of autumn is captured in this painting. The blazing, glorious colors of the marsh are a joy to behold but they also signal the dying of the year and the arrival of the dark days of winter. Passionate color, intense luminosity and rich and varied surface texture combine to create an image as compelling as the implications of the season. Signed lower right, sealed with an archival varnish and sold unframed.
