This fall, everyone said the same thing: “I’ve never seen such vivid colours!”
Some claimed that we had more colour here in southern Ontario than folks had further up north. They theorized that it was caused by a spell of dry weather. It certainly wasn’t frost. Frost was almost non-existent. The temperature barely ever dipped to more than one measly degree below zero.
While painting Frolicsome Filly, I didn’t have to drive very far for reference material. In fact, one maple viewed from our side kitchen window cranked up its glow on a daily basis!
I photographed other maples during our walks with Sparkle.
Hopefully, some of these exciting hues made it onto the canvas.
The breathtaking dazzle of this year’s autumn glory can only be hinted at on the canvas of Frolicsome Filly!
