I have been thinking a lot about composition lately. A strong composition will draw my attention from across a room. Thinking alone isn't enough. I have also been reading Edgar Payne's book "Composition of Outdoor Painting." All of Payne's notan illustrations of strong compositional designs leads to more thinking. Sooner or later, though, thinking and reading lead to action. Cruciform design, colors inspired by fall. Click image to enlarge.
