A painting

Autumn ~ a watercolor



I remember (a long time ago) when I was in elementary school in the fall of the year, our art teacher had us all paint a colorful autumn tree ~ a tree with any color leaf you could think of, she said, in bright beautiful colors, and have fun. I will never forgot that class. It was fun and I loved all the different trees that everyone painted. We then got to hang them on the windows in our classroom.


I don't know where my painted tree ever got to, but every fall I think about that painting class with all those beautiful colored trees, and the warm memories of that day.


Today I painted an autumn tree.
