Autumn Trees
10 x 12 Oil on Panel

These are hard economic times. Many people are having a hard time coming up with money to pay for food and housing. Buying a painting is way down on their list of priorities. Galleries are closing their doors. Artists are having a harder and harder time selling paintings. “Don't give up hope” my teacher once said to me “so long as there are two people left on the face of the Earth one is going to want the other to paint his portrait”.....

Or at least take their picture more like.

This is a sad sentiment, but it does offer a glimmer of hope. Anyway, super, beautiful, glorious painting Tom!
