It's beautiful, Kitty, I love the colors of the fall! The two little figures really change everything about this landscape, it's not about the road anymore, it's about who's walking on it, and where are they going...
I love it!

Kitty, I am in awe of the size of this piece - wow! You certainly have used some wonderful colors here and I like how you delicately covered the path in the foreground with leaves so that it makes the path look curvier than it really is.

Superb!

Wow, 50" x 36"!!! This is so lovely. I'm wondering how long it took you, and how many sticks you went through on this large piece!

I bet it's amazing to look at in real life.

Just another of your "tiny" sketches, eh? :D

This is lovely, though I'll admit, with the description saying the location was Oregon, I was expecting a lot more GREEN.

I'm amazed at the way you can keep the almost sketchy feeling on something so large! One would think that something that big would snare you into all sorts of picky details, but you manage to keep the painterly look with just what is required to carry the focus. Fantastic!

Great format size! I like to work large (I used to paint billboards as a master craftsman signpainter). This subject matter lends itself to the large format. You have maintained a wonderful feel and movement in the painting. Working large can be overwhelming... very well done!

Your work is incredible, Kitty! You command this medium!... :clap:
With a piece this large--did you post this from a slide or a digital photo? I am having posting issues so I thought I should ask you how you are able to show your beautiful art so beautifully!

Beautiful- cool, crisp air, sharp gusts of wind, and colours singing everywhere. Great piece, Kitty.

This one came from a slide, photographed by me and scanned in a pretty good slide scanner.

Thanks to all of you for your comments. This is a special piece for me, of two friends just getting to know each other, the boy accepting the man.

It's a typical Oregon early winter scene, wet air, foilage dried by the hot summer, rewet, signs of excessive moisture most of the year in the mossy trees. Silver Falls is about 100 miles inland, not in the rain forest region.

The distant hazy air was done with 'crumble colors' grays made from pastel colors, crumbled into tiny bits when nearly dry and stirred together, misted and pressed into sticks. These grays are full of light.

Detail showing grays.
