We Two – La Canada Flintridge Trail – Karen Winters Oil Painting

“We Two” – (La Canada Flintridge Trail) – 12 x 16 oil on canvas

UPDATE … I took the painting to the show today (Saturday) and was happy to find out that it won Best in Show. So I think I made a good decision to choose this one to enter.

Like the study that preceded it (Fall in Winter in La Canada), this painting was inspired by a walk my husband and I took last winter along the Flint Canyon Trail in La Canada, our home town. The sycamores were blazing with autumn color, even though winter was on the way. I am keeping this painting for sentimental reasons, but if anyone is interested, I can make prints. I’m entering this in an upcoming show, one of the many I’ve been preparing for.

If you live in or near La Canada, the location of this painting is very near the little old stone bridge at Berkshire which goes over the Flint Canyon creek. This is a part of the equestrian trail that is to one side of the creek.

    This is very beautiful. I love the movement, the colors, it all works. Splendidly done. Has a great mood too, and such feeling, oh, how I relate

    Beautiful, Karen. I know when I attempt Autumn colors (even in Spring!) it’s always a delicate balance between needed intensity and too much intensity. You did that well and got potent color!

    I would love to get a print of this one. I go jogging along this trail, and I absolutely love that area!
