We have a beautiful maple tree in our backyard and it's leaves are turning the most wonderful shades of autumn. There is no way to paint that kind of color but I had to try before leaving for the winter. It's interesting that the leaves change first on the south side and top of the tree while the north side remains green. This will probably be my last post until I'm up and running in Florida again. I couldn't leave without painting a fall scene.


  1. Oh- it's gorgeous! I love the way you handled the colors. See you when you get settled.

  2. I like the way the colors of the leaves are placed with more reds on one side of the tree, just like in nature. Nice painting!
