I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We wished for a white Christmas, but it didn't happen in northern Virginia. Just a little dusting.
Today I am sharing an old work--one of my first plein air paintings. It was painted last year at River Farm in Alexandria in early autumn, when the leaves hadn't yet begun to change colors. I have always be attracted to paths. If there aren't any, I sometimes invent one as a way of inviting the viewer into the painting. In this scene, two pathways join and lead you far into the woods. One wonders what will await you when you get there.
