The First Colors of Fall
30 x 40 Oil on canvas
I had to walk a little bit in a West Tennessee park before noticing this scene. The reds and golds in the trees at the bend in the road attracted me to this landscape and begged to be painted. Since I was walking with my husband and dog and without a paint brush or canvas, next best was to take a picture. Pictures never tell the whole story so I just tried to keep my brushwork loose and put in as much color as I remembered in the original scene. Painting it was a nice way to end 2014.
