Fall & the Park

It has been a fine Fall, except for the construction of East-West Park Road in Buckhorn. I have missed my regular drive through the park and the opportunity to see the great Oak on the curve as the poison ivy reddens and the leaves darken, lighten and fall. I planned to paint it again during this season, as the vine has changed the tree and buried the base and climbed the trunk. This image, 'Buckhorn Oak' was my first oil plein air-two years ago. It will be in the December-January08 show on Allen Street in Buffalo.
