For the beginning of Fall I thought it was a nice time to share one of my favorite paintings depicting the autumn season. I painted this artwork a couple years ago in watercolor and gouache paints. When I go for walks in the forests at this time of year the experience can be incredible. It feels like being inside a magical cocoon wrapped in a blanket woven from endless layers of warm colors and shadows. Just beyond the forest shelter, beyond the trees, is a sunny clear sky – and beyond that there is winter. This is what I tried to capture in the painting, and try to capture in some Fall forest photos too – that feeling of being safely wrapped up in something so immense, colorful and amazing that words and even pictures struggle to describe it. Really, the best way to feel it is to just go into the forests and have the experience!
