Autumn Enchantment – La Canada Flintridge – California landscape oil painting

December 19th, 2010

Autumn Enchantment
11 x 14 oil on canvas

Autumn. My favorite time of year. It reminds me of back to school, fresh pencils and crayons, an imminent coolness in the weather, Halloween, football games and the bluest skies of the year. Here in southern California, at least when I was growing up, the summer heat trapped a layer of haze in the sky. But spring and fall were crystal clear. When you put the blue of the sky against the warm complements of orange and gold – well, it’s just magical, and who could resist painting it. By December, the sycamores have turned and the first rains bring forth new green grass. Autumn comes late around here.

Update: This painting was done a few years ago, but I just drove through the area a few days ago and it looks exactly like this.

  2. What gorgeous colours. You do live in a very beautiful place. I’ve been browsing through a bundle of Australian Georgraphics and came upon lots of pictures of eucalyptus trees and the colourful snow gum.

  3. This one is super. Maybe your explanation is why fall is my favorite time of year. Growing up in southern California, it was never too cold during fall there either. I love the play of colors here. It looks like a gorgeous day to be out.
