Late Summer Afternoon

 latesummercolors8x6_72dpi

“Late Summer Afternoon” is a 24” X 30” stretched canvas oil painting on a sepia toned surface. This is a larger format painting than I have been doing lately. I must say it was a lot of fun using arm movement for a change rather than just wrist movement. There is a certain spontaneity retained in larger format works. The only problem I encounter is that one needs a person standing behind the artist with a wooden hammer ready to tell him or her to stop painting before going past the “painting done” mark.
A framable Giclee archive prepared print of this painting is  available from Fine Art America.
