Painting this morning, music this afternoon..it's all go

This morning's painting is about lying in the tall grasses watching the Fall colors gradually come into view.  In this region, central NJ, the colors are gently, largely muted, with the gold of beech staying all winter. The margin on the painting is pure white, but it doesn't register here as white for some mysterious camera related reason.




This is largely painted, but with ink finishing, many washes and liftings took place.  It's good to work with 120 lb paper, because it allows you to continue working long after an 80 lb sheet would have pilled and collapsed.

Off to stitch now..I'll soon have something to show you, but more work needed yet.
