September in the Trinities


"September in the Trinities" - Oil - 8" x 10"

"A yearly visit to the Trinity National Wilderness Area in Northern California gives me access to many spectacular views. While I do not climb mountains like the rest of my family, I absorb the best of the area and catch a little painting time. This was a quick sketch that caught the light of the day." --- SFG

Just as brevity is the soul of wit, simplification is the key to composition in painting. With a small canvas, such as this one, I simplify shapes and include only the essentials that will set the mood and tell the story.
