Autumn Reveries

from the Inside, Looking Out series; aka Down the Intervale of the Saco River #8, oil on pine board, 11.5″ x 48″    $552

2013. The view from the back of the barn, where I grew up in Dayton Maine, looking east to the tree line bordering the Saco River, which has only a few more miles left to travel before emptying into the Atlantic between Biddeford and Saco, down-river about 7 miles. This was my childhood playground, now seen with the eyes of maturity, in the robes of autumn.  Started in situ as a pencil drawing in the summer of 2011 on white-primed board (recycled from shelving units), the colorizing took place in the studio last spring in a flurry. The panel has twice the bang for the buck: there’s another b&w pencil drawing of the same scene on the reverse side, drawn two days after the first in 2011.
