Reminds me of a railroad trestle near where I used to live. That railroad line was converted to a hiking and bike path a number of years ago.
I had to do a double take to see that this painting was, indeed, acrylic. The graphite drawing and the use of washes (as is most evident in the painting of the side of the house) made me think for a moment that you had used watercolors.
Quite nice. What season is it there? It looks very springlike except for the brilliant orange tree in the middle.

Great! it looks so fresh and appealing too.
Thanks you guys: Katy, Mary
OP; it is spring, but I took that red maple to ultimate saturation. Thanks

Very nice work.
I like how the color in the clearance sign echos the red maple.

Dcam, this looks so much like the route we used to follow to get to the beach, when I was a kid. As always- the detail and light in the painting are great!
Thanks very much Lorigina.

Very fresh and I like how you have painted the trees at left.
This is gorgeous. I would sacrifice one of my toes to have this level of skill.
