Following Change

6x6" oil on masonite
When I painted this the David Bowie song "Changes" was on and its been stuck in my head ever since. "ch ch ch ch changes, turn and face the strange...." Its so perfect for this time of year with all the leaves and weird Halloween stuff.
I forgot how fun these 'jar' paintings are to paint. I did 4!! And I like to paint them 'backwards'. meaning ; I paint the background first, its all about the negative space between the sticks and leaves. then I do the rest saving the white highlights for last.
