Purple trunks and yellow hazes – I’m really liking this whole fall thing. I was a little frustrated in the spring with how overgrown the field where I paint had become. It used to be a field of mostly short grass, with a nice view of the trees on the other side – but now it’s blocked up with big bushes. Impossible to see through. But it turns out the bushes are mostly baby trees and have turned a beautiful shade of speckled yellow and orange. So I forgive them for blocking the far trees. They make a beautiful enough backdrop themselves.
