November Haiku

"November Haiku", Pastel on Sanded Paper, 5 x 7

This pastel was done from a pencil sketch along a rural road in Saratoga Springs NY.  The landscape is dotted with these little red buds everywhere.  The composition reminds me a bit of the japanese prints that the early American Impressionists loved so much.  I don't know how well this graphic design would stand up to a larger format but I may give it a try.  This piece will be available at the holiday miniature sale starting at Sorelle Gallery in Albany starting next Friday, November 15th.
