Oil on canvas board c. 18" x 20". Took me a long time to do this; lots of changes, particularly color arrangements, brush stroke or paint application decisions, fighting myself about realism, representation and abstracting details.
The change of seasons seems to be running in our direction here so it seemed appropriate to post it. Finished it last month.
