Anyone who lives in my neighborhood knows EXACTLY where this scene is. I see it every day and approach it head on with this magnificent Ginkgo tree, a real beauty to behold. The other trees are in full Fall color now, and are so beautiful, but competing with the Ginkgo.
I was away on vacation without paints for a week. I felt a little rusty today, but am eager to get back to the routine. The reference photo for this paintings was taken a little more than a week ago. Many more leaves have fallen since then.
