24" x 20" multimedia painting composed of acrylic paint with a dried leaf and pine cones
Autumnal was the first in a fall series of paintings that embodies warmer tones with a lot of texture. The inspiration for this piece was sparked by a letter I wrote to my parents jokingly requesting a hodgepodge of random items from my hometown, Buffalo, NY. They sent everything on my list. Included in the list was the largest leaf from a neighbors' red maple tree, a pine cone, and a new drum. Two of the three ended up as media in this painting; I crumbled the dried leaf into the paint as it was drying and stacked the de-constructed pine cone pieces like shingles on a roof in the corner of the piece.
I wish to show that nature, even at it's most raw and fragile times of change, is vibrant and majestic.
