Out My Backdoor, 10 x 12
The abstraction and intricacy of things is becoming more appealing.
This a small section of a hundred foot tall Big Leaf Maple that I have been enthralled with for several years. It has leaves larger than dinner plates that, in the summer, just form a dark canopy. However, in the Spring and Fall the leaves are more translucent and the colors get interesting.
The urge to 'just do it' finally overcame the 'reticence to try' and, after an initial 'scrape and start over', I like the results. So many colors. So many seductive opportunities to make a boring order out of interesting randomness. And several times thinking that 'this will never turn out......no way'.
Just Do It.
