Late Summer Fields
6" x 6" oil on panel
Late summer always brings rich colour that heralds change. The colour zigzags across the landscape, pulling the eye with it and leading into the next, reminding me of those lines in old pinball games leading down and up to guide the ball.
This is a small painting done with leftover paint on my palette after a larger painting was complete.
"In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil.
And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb color effects as from August to November."
- Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden, 1905
