Cottonwood Dawn — California Impressionist Oil Painting – Eastern Sierras

December 21st, 2008

Cottonwood Dawn
(near Bishop, California)
16 x 20 oil on canvas
SOLD

Ths painting is sold but I have others of the Sierras in the fall. Write me.

Although the leaves are now fallen and scattered by the wind, the eastern Sierras still call me and evoke memories of golden glory. I understand that snow sometimes falls in Bishop, in the Owens Valley, but that it doesn’t stay on the ground long. How I’d love to go back there and see these meadows and cottonwoods clad in downy white. Maybe later in the season – I hope!

  1. I love the colour you’ve done the sky – it’s so redolent of that time of year and so perfect with the colour of those leaves!

  2. Katherine, you have an observant eye that the color is a little different from usual. I had recently read an article in American Artist in which one of the artists shared that when he paints brilliant golden fall trees he often subdues the sky a bit – neutralizes it – to make the golds even more striking. I thought , hmm, perhaps I’ll try that … and I liked the result. Isn’t it true that our art education sometimes progresses in from things we glean along the way. It doesn’t happen all at once in great revelations but in small steps and experiments.

  3. I can’t believe HOW MANY paintings you painted from that trip up there to Bishop and surrounds.
    Love the warm colors in this one. Looks like you’ve been selling up a storm as well. Guess Santa may visit your family this Christmas because you’ve been VERY GOOD!!

    Happy holidays!
