Aspen Landscape Oil Painting – Aspen Grove

January 17th, 2009

SOLD
Aspen Grove in the Sierras
11 x 14
oil on linen

This painting is sold, but you can see more Sierra Nevada paintings here

Wow, where did the week go? I’ve been so busy doing various art marketing and selling tasks that I haven’t made time to post. That will be remedied very soon.

This is another in my ongoing Sierra fall series. The aspen grove pictured here is dwarfed by the steep uplift of the Sierra Nevada range, which literally rises like a wall from the Owens Valley floor. I was captivated by the contrast of the deep blue violet mountain in contrast with the warm bright foliage of the aspens. Sages and other late blooming wildflowers, nipped by the frost and tousled by the wind, provided an interesting foreground with some suggestion of motion.

Can you feel the autumn wind blowing down out of those peaks, causing golden leaves to quiver and fly away?

Tomorrow I’ll be taking a painting to White’s Gallery on Honolulu Ave. in Montrose for the Pasadena Society of Artists new member show. I was juried in last April, but the new member show is an annual event, so it’s a nice opportunity to show some work. The reception is January 24, 2-4 pm if you have the time to come by and see the works of 20 artists.

  2. I’d like to try to make it. I’ll pop it into my calendar and see if I can get there.

    LOVE the colors in this one… Don’t know how you manage to do it!

    By the way… I enjoyed sharing a meal and conversation with you last week!!

  3. The first thing I thought was of the nice contrast. The trees look so sunny bright. I was wondering why you made such an interesting “sky” to find it is mountains so the picture makes you stop and really look at it. Great job.
