Autumn Interlude painting by Anita Williams
Just thought I would add another painting from my "psychedelic period"। (Kids, no hallucinogenic drugs were abused during the painting process।) This is just the way my mind works. This one also started plein air. I was unhappy with the original on site painting and brought it back to my lair/studio/shed. I'm thinking maybe Miles Davis joined me in the studio that evening. The trees are "Kind of Blue". The oranges and yellows were inspired by the actual colors of the autumn leaves which were illuminated by the sun shining through them. I was really going for the relationship of the trees to each other. These three trees are literally interconnected (growing into each other). Now that you see the inner workings of my mind I hope I am not scaring you much. I have other paintings that are not this wild. I meant to upload one today, but it was too large. I will have to play with the resolution a bit.
