I walk around this area in my home town 2-3 times per week, and during the fall season one year, I saw these trees on the bank of our local lake. The colors enthralled me, so I exaggerated them a little more with my pastel painting. The lake is kind of muggy, but the oranges and purples are crisp and vibrant. I always think of autumn days and quiet walks when I see this painting.

Nature is my favorite subject - either in painting or drawing. My strongest design element is shape - both positive and negative. That is one reason why I love to depict trees in any season, especially bare trees that reach their limbs up to the sky leaving spaces through which the sky peeks through. There is a certain human aspect in a tree shaped by its environment. Variations in line, hue, and value also mark my work. My personality is calm and steady, and it always shows up in my art.
