"Colors of Fall"
For Jean from Kay
Kay's detritus palette.Here is my post for Jean....her topic, DETRITUS was a challenge for me. I thought and thought about it, and decided to use my detritus on my palette to start her painting. I have a habit of immediately starting a new painting with my left-over paints when I finish a painting. I had been working on a large rooster, and decided that I would take the detritus of my palette, and go through the detritus of my vacation to Jackson Hole. I had flyers, photographs, ticket stubs and all kinds of odds and ends. I decided that the landscape of Wyoming was so beautiful that I would paint some aspens for Jean. So, Jean's moleskine is drying...it may take a while since I used the palette knife on the tree trunks. I painted this on the first day of fall, Sept. 23, 2011, thus the title, "Colors of Fall". I hope that you enjoy your moleskine posts.....Artfully yours, Kay and her detritus palette.
