At the end of the summer.

Autumn

Thick pasty oil paint on canvas will leave lots of texture.  This painting was inspired after a hike in the Black Hill of South Dakota in very late summer.  The early day was cool and some of the leaves were just beginning to turn.

Against mysterious backdrop, travelers on horseback make their way along a bleak landscape

This post contains a simple watercolor that reminds me of my youth. I grew up on the reservation in the 1950’s.  Occasionally riders would pass by our home late evening or early morning.  When the sky turns red, I think back and remember sounds and sights of horses walking by kicking up dust. Original has been sold.  No prints available at this time.
