Late Summer Colors
Parkway Series # 247 12 x 16 oil SOLD
I have painted this scene from Lick Log Ridge several times but as the seasons change it becomes new with each painting. The late summer colors are exciting to see; as fall approaches the reds begin to appear in various shades. Ralph Waldo Emerson said "nature wears the colors of the spirit". If so, the colors of the spirit of Fall are my favorite.
