Autumn Beckons

Autumn Beckons, L. Daniel, 12 x 16


Fall and spring are the best times to live in central Texas... and actually maybe they are the best times to live just about anywhere! Don't we love the changing of the seasons and all the accompanying colors, smells and memories? This row of trees marking the farmer's field has been on my list for a while now, but it is especially compelling right now in its fall array. I had to do a little trespassing while painting this one, but what's a girl to do? Didn't seem to bother anyone. :)

Hi Laurel,

I can almost feel the warmth in this. It was a classic autumn day here, warm with shelter, cold without, but sunny and gorgeous. An astonishingly beautiful painting.

XOXOXOXOXBarbara
