This will be my first time showing my work in Burlington. The paintings just went up this last Wednesday and I went to check them out during the First Friday Art Walk in Burlington. Everything looks wonderful! I'm thrilled to have my paintings out in the world again. What a great location!

I know the first day of fall was a couple of weeks ago, but we've had such beautiful weather it still felt like summer. It hasn't been since the last couple of days of damp rainy weather and frost this morning that has made me realize, it's fall. I thought that it was only appropriate to stop my summer shadows and continue them inside allowing the shadows to take new forms. This change of seasons has made me think about the change in the landscape as well as the change in shadows. I would like to follow this series with shadow paintings from the fall and winter. Even though I still have a lot of work on these paintings, I've just begun the underpainting of the fall series.

Rainy weather means no shadows and working with water soluble oils could be a bit risky in the rain. I've began working on a few paintings inside, working with the shapes and colors that were previously painted. The shadows were a starting point and an inspiration, now it's time to see where the paintings will go.
