Fall Abstract, 12" x 12" oil on birch board
This one just happened. I started with broad strokes with a large brush from the same palette of fall colors I've been using lately, covering up an old painting that did not interest me anymore. I expected to put down some colors then find a composition from photos, but then I kept going without a visual reference The trees and leaves were in my head just waiting to come out. Sides are almost 2" deep, painted the same red-orange.
