Shadow Rhythm

oil on canvas

It's a good thing we all have different tastes, or we'd all want the same thing! My husband, who is my favorite critic, doesn't care for this painting, and yet I really like it. I like reds and oranges, which may explain it... and he is red/green color blind, which may explain it, too! He is drawn to composition and value, but the variations in similar-valued reds and oranges don't stand out to him. He can see blues pretty well; too bad the leaves don't turn blue in the fall!

This is stunning. I really like the darkness of the understory. IT reminds me of New Mexico Cottonwoods in the fall.

That's what drew me, too... it's so mysterious! thanks for your comment.
