"Home Before Dark" Comments Appreciated.
Size: 24" x 24" x 1.5 Acrylic on Canvas. Made with layers of custom mixed acrylic & pearlescent paints, powders & varnishes.

This is how I remember the beginning of fall as I made it "home before dark"... riding my bike as a kid and passing the giant Maple tree next to my house. Great memories.

This is very interesting. I can imagine the kind of memories you are invoking (but I haven't yet tried painting my own - good idea though). With the layers and materials that you mention, this must look even more impressive in person. :)
I hope we will be seeing more of your work.

This really appeals to me and the story behind it gels with my own first impression of whirling past a tree at first light or last light of the day. Well done!

Wow, I can see the tree on the left and two figures walking away from the viewer in the upper right. Great,
