Autumn Road

16x20 acrylic on board

Another long overdue painting. This one is an autumn scene along a dirt road near where I grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania. The area is higher in elevation, and not far from the highest elevation in Pennsylvania (3,213 ft). Consequently the forests in this area are similar to those in western New England -- a mixed hardwood forest. There are enough sugar maples to support a local maple syrup industry.
