Cottonwood and Willow Gold

11" x 14"  Oil on Panel
Seasons slide one into another, and time has carried us into another autumn. The fall season  is so brief; there isn't time enough for diving into and limning all the brilliant displays of scarlet and gold. All I can do is go about here and there sampling autumn's brilliance. The rows of willows along ranch roads in Heber Valley provide the first sample shown in this post. These trees have been the subjects for paintings made in summer, fall and winter.

The second image is of a cottonwood against a backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains. The leaves have turned, and the mountains are dusted with an early autumn snow. These cottonwoods have also been the subjects of several sketches and paintings made in all seasons. I hope they'll continue to be.
