The development of this painting was fun and unusual. I was painting Aspens from memory when an Artist Friend Dianne Shannon came to my studio to visit. She said, “Wow, that looks like one of my photographs”. since I was struggling with the right memory I used her photo for my source. Of course with Dianne’s permission. It’s not exactly like the photo but so much fun to abstract this out of the photo. Makes me want to go back to Yosemite in the Autumn and paint outdoors.
