Before the Fall

Autumn in the Pacific NW brings a wonder of gold and yellow to the trees that shed their leaves. Just touches of orange and brown for contrast. This is a glimpse Before the Fall.

For the first time, I painted on a totally blank piece of paper. No drawing at all, not even a horizon line. After getting past the was fun! Done completely by the picture in my head and the colors outside my window with a little help from my brushes.

Missing from picture, one very annoying squirrel!

I love the soft texture, and the glow of pink coming up from the horizon.
