Backyard Color

Backyard Color             oil               12" x 9"
Today I did work with more fall color. I've noticed on this tree, which is in our backyard, that as the leaves change, so do other parts of the trunk. This one gets a deep rich red color and the texture of the peeling bark gives it a lot of interest. There were more of the yellow masses of leaves, but I thought for focus, I would just keep it to a few.

 Have a Happy & Colorful Halloween!

That tree trunk is so amazing! Love the textures and colors. It's so alive!! Your tall green grasses really echos the height of the tree. A real stunner, Mary!
