Sunny Days


There is an elm tree up the road that seems to hug you as you go by. The leaves

are golden. The autumn sky is true blue!

5'x7' oil on gesso'd board.

This is wonderful Bill. So well done and I love the little impressionistic person walking along.

I think we had these right around the corner from where we live, I know what you mean- it was yellowy golden like i've never seen. The leaves fell off too quickly, I couldnt set up my easel in time! I love this painting, the saturation of this kind of stuff is hard to do and you pulled it off without it looking too forced.

Thanks Barb! I thought it might help put a scale of size to that tree by having someone
stroll by. The tree is easily 50 feet tall!

Thanks James! This one hung on to it's leaves
longer than most. Glad I caught it.
