Before the Entrance

Before the Entrance, Oil on Canvas 24" x 18"

Although the final colors of autumn were calling, I worked on this painting as a submission to a competition. I would rather have been outside trying to capture the last hurrah’s before the really cold stuff settles in, but deadlines are deadlines.

This is an idea that has been brewing for a few months. I witnessed this scene during the Fields Project in June.  I love to look up at the sides of these buildings just as I enter them. The patterns, the lines, the foreshortening get to me. I like to find these designs which most people do not see.

A forecast of rain for tomorrow. I hope that the rains and wind are calm, leaving a few leaves and colors for me to capture en plein air later this week.
