New Fall Paintings

Fall is here, there's a crispness to the 78 degree air that's circulating 'round the old studio this week and pictures come over the news feed of snow and tornadoes in far away places. (How else could Tucsonans appreciate the seasonal dissidence?) As well as shaking up the palette from time to time with new colors I continually add new brushes.  This practice is brought on by necessity as much as inventiveness.  Brushes wear out and got too nasty to use. So, I experiment with new tips every so often, having my old stand-byes waiting at the ready in case something fails with the news ones and there's an explosion. The precipitous drop in temperatures this past month and new paint brushes are responsible for the paintings shown here.
