Autumn in a Small Town
This painting is based on my old friend and adopted grandpa Bern’s and his wife Louise’s home next door. In this piece I wanted to capture the autumn colors in all their vibrant stages, this scene takes place midst of fall. Set in a small town Autumn is one of my favorite times of year.
You can see in the driveway that it looks as though it recently rained and you can make out the reflective wet pavement. Sadly Bern and his wife passed away last year. They were in there nineties when they passed and had a long and healthy life. We think about them often and miss them dearly. When I look at this painting I always imagine them sitting out front in a rocking chair.
