Day of Grace - SOLD

30x40 inches
oil on canvas

Anyone who knows me knows that along about October I start griping about the weather.  It shouldn't come as a surprise to a native Oregonian that summer here is just a blink between the wet seasons, but every year I get indignant that the warm weather is over already.  And yet I LOVE the fall colors.  Hence the title of this painting: a day of grace, or, unmerited favor.  A day with the benefit of blue skies and a warm sun shining down on those lovely autumn hues.

This is hanging in the "Trees" show at the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River, OR.
