I wanted to do at least one image for fall and went with 8 x 10 canvas panel. Still working with the lighting in the studio to find out the best approach - the idea was to have a little brighter mood. Attempted a random arrangement with only a small effort to influence the composition.
The pine cones were gathered while walking my dogs and I have enough to use as fire-starters for building a fire this winter. They really are fun to paint. ;o)
