This piece is titled for the ring the subject is wearing, which is a replica of one of my favorite pieces of jewelry that I own. I've recently been quite fascinated by chiaroscuro and definitive light sources. How fitting that it would be during the autumn season, with moody weather every other day. The evenings also have harsher shadows that contrast with the dappled light through the trees with falling leaves.

This image had the shadows, texture and mood that I have been connecting with, so I felt drawn to paint it in my own way.
