I have four new paintings in the State of the Art Gallery’s November show: Olio – a member’s show. They are small paintings, mostly 12 x 16, except for the Peach trees, which is 12 x 18. They are oil on canvas with palette knife, done outdoors during late September and early October. It was a marvelous time of subtle change. Each day the world was a little more gold. Green was slowly being replaced by red in all of its wonderful manifestations of pink, orange and purple.
