As the leaves begin to fall and the branches of the trees are revealed to me, I'm feeling a little smitten this morning with Allison Gildersleeve's large scale paintings. I love seeing the underlying structure of the painting peek through lush passages of foliage, much like I observe the skeletons of bark while out walking in the woods. Coupled with a heady palette of riotous color, these intoxicating paintings absolutely sing out loud.
