Season of Short Days
wax, graphite, and oil stick on paper
I found this painting inside another, larger piece that I wasn't crazy about.
Oddly, this wasn't the section that I liked in the first attempt.
Maybe it was my lack of attachment to it that allowed me to get free and let it become something new.
It bears a resemblance to my "back yard", a wild meadow ringed by stone walls and woods.
Incidentally, I did not post dimensions because I haven't decided on a final crop yet. There is a lot more sky, which was fun to paint, but I think the piece is stronger with like this.
