Front Gate

Front Gate, 8 x 10
NFS

I'm no botanist, but I thought this scene was evidence of Austin's somewhat unusual climate. The red flowers evoked a feeling of springtime to me, while the orange foliage in the background unmistakeably said fall. Either way, after an extremely hot summer here, this November has been SO welcome.

I love the looseness of your strokes in this piece and how the tree branch and light post hold the viewer into the painting.
Happy Thanksgiving Stephen!

Stephen - This is a great painting! Did you enjoy doing it? I think so... it shows in the fresh colors and brushwork. Well done friend!

I love the brushwork in this one. Bold and loose.

Cool brush technique - it almost has a watercolory feel to it.
