Elements of Design
Parkway Series #291 12 x 16 oil Sold
In the fall I was able to get fabulous photos of the area around Mabry's Mill. The mill itself has been painted sooooo many times I decided to paint the area around it instead. This tree is across the road from the pond/mill. It was late afternoon and the sun was setting behind the tree highlighting the tree and foreground with incredible patterns of light and color. I love the abstract quality of the elements of design in this image.
