Sky and Trees Before Daybreak

A November morning in the wooded hills of western Connecticut, just before sunrise, the sky is an incandescent blue decorated with a black lace of tree limbs, branches and twigs. It's only a week since the last leaves fell and will be six months more before new leaves appear. The season of green is over. Maples, oaks and locust have begun their long sleep.

This painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.
