Autumn Symphony in Northern Ontario

Autumn Symphony in Northern Ontario

Autumn is a beautiful season most anywhere in the world. Cosy sweater weather, warm drinks by the fire, and awesome coloured leaves…what’s not to like?

I may be a bit biased but here in Northern Ontario, the fall colours in the bush go absolutely crazy with crimson reds merging with the brightest yellows producing shades of orange against the grey rocks. What a show!

The awesome splendour of fall colours in Northern Ontario

Autumn Symphony
30″ x 40″ Acrylic – SOLD

A friend of mine left a message on my Facebook page one day: “Cornelia, I need one of your paintings!”

So naturally, I called him and checked out his office space which had the most brightly painted walls I’ve ever seen. Marigold, bright yellows, reds and oranges! These guys really like fall colours.

The challenge was to paint a colourful fall scene that would compliment the colours and not get lost or overpower. Well, I have to admit, the painting looked perfect on a bright yellow wall.

I named this painting Autumn Symphony because it almost seems like the birch tree with its branches was standing like a conductor orchestrating this most magnificent symphony. If you’ve never been to Northern Ontario in the fall, you really should add it to your list of places to visit!

Autumn Path acrylic painting

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.
