  2. Two beautiful acrylics, Joan. What a wonderful place to sit and paint. Autumn has been a long time coming here too and now it's finally here, it's too dark to go out painting ! Best wishes, Michael.

  3. Hi joan.
    I agree with Michael my friend, both brilliant paintings. If I have`to pick a favourite, and only if, I would say the bottom one. I really love studies of trees. Well done again Joan and all the best.

  6. That must have been a really super place to sit and paint. The trees are wonderful! Is it really November and the trees still green! Maybe winter will also be slow in arriving!

  7. Even without fall leaves you made the subject work for you. I can imagine myself sitting in the top one looking over the lake enjoying the beauty captured.
