Fall's Abstraction

Frosty mornings are the order of the day, and though ice crystals glaze the earth in winter white, with the sun's rising and subsequent heat, the ice melts and we are left with the fading ochres, siennas, chocolates, coffees, russets, auburns, tans, and bronzes of fall's glory. This abstract is my tribute to fall's colorful floor ... the earth beneath our feet, under the melted rime, long before it all become next year's earthly nutrients.

We've begun preparations for the holidays and I've started my marathon cooking activities. We're expecting our fifth grandchild in the next couple of weeks, so I'd like to make sure that with all the fun that event will bring, the majority of the holiday cooking and gifting is already done.

We're in for a warm weekend with temps in the mid 60s and reaching 70F ... go figure ...

Have a great weekend!

(Note: The squiggly lines are from a Krylon acryllic webbing (www.krylon.com/products/webbing_spray/) for those interested.)

What a lovely and fitting tribute. The colors and brushwork are perfect and the webbing the icing on the cake. Oh me Lin, to see you master abstract painting after all the other types you've mastered is a joy to my heart.

We too are in for a warm weekend but not as warm as NC. Still, I'll take it gladly!
Big hugs,
Lorraine

Lin, I remember from the workshop that you have a way of hinting at a form within an abstract painting:) In this one, I see a man riding a horse, or perhaps an elephant.
