Leaves with Branch

30x24 1996 $500

Leaves, moss and and old branch form this composition. I particularly enjoyed the variety of shapes, color and texture in all these elements. This is a complex composition but one that works quite nicely. Once again the varnish prevents this photo from really showing off the beauty of this painting. The stretchers for this particular canvas have warped over the years which is a very rare occurrence. A good frame may be all that is needed to resolve that problem or the painting could be restretched on new stretchers.
