The part of autumn that I like the best is when only some of the trees have changed color. Somehow, the yellows, oranges and reds are so much more intense when there are fewer of them. As the trees change color, they also start to shed a lot of their leaves. That allows more sunshine to come through the canopy giving the entire woods a golden glow.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
