Fall Leaves Painting


This was a view from our sunroom window when we first moved south to North Carolina. There was a wooded area across the road from where we lived. The leaves were so vivid that fall.
So out came my paints as I tried to capture the beauty.
And now this painting hangs in our home, many years later, and is a reminder of that time and place.
