"Autumn Day at Marsh Creek", 9x12, plein air

Marsh Creek State Park was about a ten minute drive from where I used to live in Chester Springs, PA., before moving to Florida. Our family had many happy times at that park. We would walk the trails, fish, canoe and wind surf in the lake and swim in the community pool on hot summer days. It was a great place for picnics and watching sunsets.

During our recent trip up north, I decided to go paint there. The trees did not disappoint, and one in particular seemed to be screaming, "Paint me! Paint me!"

So I did.

Feel free to email me at if you are interested in this plein air sketch.

Love the mixture of the cool and warm colors, really makes the piece eye-catching. The thick brushstrokes really captivate the image of the trees well! The composition of the painting is well-thought out as well, with the warmer tree standing out. Very vibrant! The painting inspires me to try an abstract painting as well... you have incredible talent, great job!
