Fall Trees stresses design, color and texture. The fall trees grab my attention with their color while the fall skies with muted gray provide a counter balancing background.
Winter Dance shows the same trees stripped of foliage. The title comes from a book about a man's participation in the Iditarod in Alaska. The description in the book of the cold, the whiteness, and the starkness of the landscape inspired me to try to capture some of that feeling in the painting.
Both paintings are 10" x 22" which is a different format but intriguing for this design.
