Here's a new one. Trying to capture that amazing color that happens on a wet grey day. It's as if the trees store up all the sunshine all summer and then release it when the sky goes grey. This is 12" x 12" acrylic on cradled wood panel. All C&C most welcome.

Karen, I was scrolling and admiring the clouds that showed first, then the bright orange red of the trees, all the cars and then the puddle with the reflections surprised me.
Beautiful work!

Nicely painted familiar scene from Oregon. I lived there for a time in the '70's.

Lovely autumn colors on the trees and a great idea to have it reflected on the puddle!

I think you captured this beautifully! The colors in the trees are most amazing, and Wilfred is right! It is a great idea to have it reflected in the puddle!

Karen: I always love the intensity of gray days. The color just pops.
This really shows that in a beautiful way. Very nice.

My reaction was the same as Margaret's at #2 - beautiful sky and colour, glorious foliage and then that amazing puddle/reflections.
Altogether gorgeous!

Ah yes, I know what you mean about the beauty of the colours on a wet and dark grey sky day and this painting does make me feel it! The reflections in the puddle are a little thing that really makes the painting special.
