Acrylic on canvas, 60x45 inches, 3-07
This could be a sunset or a sunrise... which in actuality would make the colors of the leaves darker and with different tones. But I wanted to project a certain vitality without a light, airy sky, rather one that created contrast with the trees--to brighten and bring them out. To give it a more uplifting feeling. The painting in reality is a lot brighter than the photo of it here. I like the way there is a feeling of being able to "walk into" the image.. up the path... which was the original title. But a client who commissioned me to do a big floral to give to his wife on their anniversary said, "It is definitely a welcome sign." Thank you, Tom. So hence the new name Spring Welcome.
