Autumnal Equinox

I have had the idea of illustrating the four seasons for a while now. Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice can be seen in the archives of this blog, and now I have completed Autumnal Equinox. Here it is in process...

I began this painting at the Ridgestock festival and examined my environment around me to get inspiration for the tree in the foreground and the landscape farm scene.

The tree in the foreground is a black locust, btw. They have sharp thornes.

Yes, he is indeed some sort of squirrel cat creature, a spirit as tall as the tree, riding a pimped out fancy old bike. Spreadin the golden glow in the leaves, gently beckoning them to fall. Yup, this was a fun one alright.

Video of me in ACTION! Woot! Thanks for lookin.
