Tree Stand In Leyden
© Karen Lynn Link, Tree Stand in Leyden, acrylic on canvas, 12” x 18”. Available $275 USD
The tree stand in the painting above is located close to the junction of W. 82nd Avenue and Quaker Street in Leyden. The trees have grown so large and so many more in number now that it’s hard for me to recognize that it is the same place in the painting. The color of the grasses came from a paint mixture error that I thought suited the time of year better than the mixture I was intending. It was a cold grey fall day that had a sky threatening snow all day. Every now and again the sun would peak through the grey overcast skies. Such a typical day on the the front range.
