Autumn Path acrylic painting
24 x 36 acrylic on canvas.
Note to self: always finish what you start! About 3 years ago I began this painting. I couldn’t seem to find a way to complete it, and even wanted to paint over it and start fresh. A good friend and an artist gave me some good advice once when she said we should never leave a painting unfinished. I feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment with “Autumn Path”.
It’s a reminder that even though it sometimes is a battle, if you keep at it you will find a way to finish what you began, and the results are so rewarding!!! And sometimes just taking a break from a project and stepping away for some time helps to see it in a new light. A painting or project may be abandoned but never totally forgotten.
This painting is an autumn path at Allan Park which is located off of Hwy. 4 between Durham and Hanover, Ontario. It was a favourite path that we walked in many seasons and holds many memories.
