Autumn, Winter and Spring Completed… Too Bad I Hate Summer

Well, I don’t HATE summer, but it is my least favorite season and I’m expecting it to be the most challenging painting of my four seasons trees series.

I have Autumn, Winter and Spring all complete and had them in my studio this morning for a client meeting.  I’m pleased to say that my project to create several large-format giclee reproductions from my four seasons originals is officially a “GO”!  I’ll be creating two multi-panel pieces, each with an overall size of about 50 x 70 inches.  I’ll hand-embellish them with my metallic watercolors to highlight individual elemental squares.  The installation site is the new Lincoln Medical Center lobby just south of the Denver Tech Center.

I also started “Summer” today only to discover that I’m actually nervous about it.  Will I capture summer as an explosion of growth, green and ice cream, or will “hot, dry and miserable” (which is how I feel about it) creep in??

    These are lovely. Personally, summer is my favorite, but I’m not a cold weather person!

    These are beautiful. Summer wouldn’t be my favorite either. Living on the Canadian west coast, everything feels like a uniform claustrophobic green – ferns, moss, pines. Although perhaps better than dry and hot. Good luck, I’m sure it will be lovely.

    Wonderful trio! Looking forward to seeing Summer too (especially since we are expecting a snowstorm tomorrow in NYC)!

    Summer could include fruits on the trees~ Although if you remember late August in Missouri they’d all be crispy and dry with parched earth around them.

    Thanks everyone for the comments…

    Ellen – I will have to say that I can’t imagine describing the Pacific coast being “uniform claustrophobic green”! Winter is so brown here in Denver, I’d love me some green!
