I loved the contrast of the bright red and orange leaves with the dark rocks, the evergreens and swiftly flowing water. This was one of the early paintings I did after devoting several years to raising my son. Oil painting and kids do not go well together so while he was very young I spent my artistic talents on craft projects. This is more impressionistic than my later work but I still love the play of colors in this painting.
