New Painting

Squamish Riverbed, 24"x36", acrylic

This was inspired by a day trip to Squamish last fall. The warm fall colours against the cooler neutrals in the mountains and surrounding dry riverbed were what I wanted to emphasize. I first painted the mountain in more detail, but it was a distraction. I try to think what is this painting about, is it the mountain, the foreground, the fall colours? It cannot be about everything. I try to simplify the supporting cast and play up the star character. In this case the trees. What do you think?
