Living Large

16 x 20 Oil on Canvas

I found myself at home alone on a stormy Saturday night- perfect for painting.  I've been thinking all week about working on some larger pieces again.  The daunting thing about bigger work ifor me is subject matter- what is worth the extra space?  This size-16x20- isn't even particularly large.  But last night I thought ' why not'.  And I like the result.  It was quite freeing.  I took a walk last weekend in the Minuteman Park in Concord, MA.  Lots of nice trails and the leaves at peak.  I think I have captured the joy of the day-sunlight and crisp temperatures and a lovely slow pace.
