"Change" - Oil - 6" x 6"

"Vivid yellows and oranges of the cottonwood trees of autumn are wonderful contrasts to the distant mountains near Bishop, California. That year, snow was early and added its accent." --- SFG

NOTE TO ARTISTS: Quick, small works should be approached as simple shapes used to create the composition. John Clymer, whose enormous murals are breathtakingly displayed at the Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, said that he was somewhat surprised that the larger the painting, the more detail he had to put in. I have found that the opposite is true for small works. Though some artists are willing to pass out magnifying glasses so viewers can see the detail in their small works, I am not so inclined.
