"Alabama Foothills" refers to the landscape that Fitzpatrick saw and painted near his home in Wetumpka, Alabama, which is at the southernmost edge of the Appalachian Mountains. This traditional landscape painting demonstrates Fitzpatrick's characteristic style and his practice of utilizing brilliant color. The paint was applied thickly, and used by the artist to model shapes on the canvas with impasto. He creates brilliant highlights and literal shadows by building layers of paint with large, vigorous brushstrokes.
