Those of us who originate from eastern Canada often lament the lack of bright reds in Alberta’s fall colours. There are actually quite a few red accents in the fall colours here but they are mainly in hedges, bushes and minor characters. I’ve become increasingly aware of them this year. This is a view from our front yard.

I did a colour study, en plein air, and then came right in and did a studio version. I like the freshness and rhythm of the image. I love plein air painting. I particularly enjoy it when it’s right at my door step like in this case.

    Very cool composition, Rex. Very interesting treatment of light and shadow. I really like your more abstract pieces like this one. -Shelley M.
