Autumn Warmth - Oil on Canvas Panel - 6" x 8"

Autumn Warmth – Oil on Canvas Panel – 6″ x 8″

This studio work is inspired by an experience from Door County.

Last autumn, my wife and I planned to travel to Door County to retrieve works from a gallery (an end of the season thing). Our youngest son, decided to get a couple days off of work to travel with us. Quickly followed by our other son and daughter-in-law. So the whole crew, including dog, traveled to Door County.

Spent Saturday morning and early afternoon moving around the county enjoying the scenery and stopping to purchase a few “necessities” (that is, various food items which can only be found here).

By late afternoon we were back at the cabin. We were invited to attend a hog roast that evening and the gang was enjoying a little nap-time. I was too antsy to waste daylight. I quietly slipped out with camera in hand to take a walk along some neighboring back roads.

Came across the sight of late afternoon sunlight draping across a winding entrance to a homestead. Couldn’t see much of the house, but I loved the raw design possibilities and snapped a photo.

Recently came across the idea of incorporating a barn into the scene. I like the way it works.
