Maple Canyon

Maple Canyon, L. Daniel, 12 x 9

Earlier this week I spent a couple of days camping and painting in Lost Maples State Park, known for its magnificent fall foliage. It required a little hiking to find the best color, but we strapped our backpacks on and got ourselves to it. There were some pretty spectacular spots along the trail and the weather was just perfect. Although one hiker insisted that it was "WAY better last year", I was pretty impressed. 

Here I am with my painting buddies, Carol Marine and Penny Lentz See what I mean about that color behind us??? We had a great time painting by day and giggling by night. :)

Me, Carol and Penny

Well done. You captured a kind of Fall sparkle. And of course, the complementry colors make it pop.

Hi Laurel,

The painting is wonderful. I like the small orange bits in the green, and the pinkish road.

Super -- and the three of you look great.
