Dear November

TM9295 Dear November 42×48 oil on panel

Early November is gold and bronze, with a touch of lingering crimson, at least around here, but late November shifts into the cooler colors. The dried, pale and papery leaves that hang on all winter are beginning to take over. I love them. So stubborn. Dear November is about the moment of transition. Grays and neutral colors are coming in, and our only memory of summer will be in those dangling, paper-thin leaves. Details below.  Enjoy,
