A Glorious Autumn Day, 14" x 11"

This Fall has been one of the most beautiful to me. Maybe I'm seeing things in a different way but I know I'll be sad to see the last leaves on the trees being carried away by the wind... Although I have not done any decent plein air this season, I have been painting a few fall scenes from photos and reworking some old ones.

I had started this painting during the Susan Ogilvie workshop back in May, but I had issues with the shadows on the road. This time around I reworked the shape of the shadows and their color, lightened the red of the house, and finally cropped the painting at the bottom. I'm happy with it now.

I remember this one, Adriana! It's really beautiful. The shadow shapes on the road add so much interest!

So pretty. It makes you want to see what is up the road.

Thank you all!
Judy, can you believe that I used to be scared or using colors like those in a painting?
Donna, I new the shadows were necessary but they gave me the most trouble.
Karen, this is up on Dutch Hill Road in Otisco; beautiful farmland.
