Clapping Leaves

'Clapping Leaves', 20" X 16", oil, progressive stages
With a wonderful fall I have been spending a lot of time outdoors sketching and painting. The weather has been perfect for it, not to mention the scenery. I am blessed with the scenes right on our small ranch. Here I tried to capture the steps in this painting. I worked over the whole painting bringing the foreground in focus as the center point towards the final stage. The painting background, middle ground and foreground are in simple shapes keeping the whole scene open.


'The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.'  Psalm 18:30
