Almost Too Much Color

This time of year can be challenging to paint as the leaves are at the peek on the Autumn season. 24x18 inches pastel on Uart paper..


  1. Too much color? Never! This one is beautiful, Tom---I was just checking on the compostions you come up with and I love them all.

  2. Tom,
    This is absolutely beautiful!
