pastel • 25″ X 19″
In “Ruby Woods,” I wanted you to be transported to a beautiful autumn day, completely surrounded by nature. Hiking through the forest, hearing the leaves crunching under foot and the canopy rustling above, you can be totally carefree and lost in the peaceful moment. Making short energetic strokes with my pastels and including vivid warm colors add to that joyful feeling of being immersed in nature.

I created this autumn scene with palette knife and extremely thick oil paint to achieve texture and suggest the energy found in nature. Can you feel the breeze blowing through the leaves?
