The summer of 2016 went well into fall. I was fascinated because my summer flowers weren't dying as the fall ones came into bloom. I did this series of oil pastels about the juxtaposition of plant life that is normally not seen together. As always, I tried to play up the abstract qualities of the images and their shadows on a sunny day. Matted dimensions are 24" X 22."
"Summer into Fall III"
This oil pastel is matted, but will need to be custom framed because of its unique size. I highly recommend that it be framed with Conservation Clear glass which helps to filter out most UV rays. Even though this glass has UV protection, NEVER put art in direct sunlight. Direct UV rays can bleach the color over time. ALWAYS keep art in cool, dry climate controlled spaces. Humidity and temperature extremes are harmful to the art.
