This landscape in oil I titled "John's Painting." It was a gift I painted for my brother-in-law. I love the fall season and all of the colors as the leaves are changing. It is 12x16" canvas. Sometimes I enjoy "painting landscapes" to take a break from my detailed work with the birds. I was looking through my files of old and recent paintings and came across this picture. I didn't have the painting long after it was dry, so it was fun to have found this photo. It was painted almost a year ago now. It was inspired by some photographs I took up in Flagstaff while staying near the lake. Even though I do not have any formal training in "painting landscapes", I really enjoy doing them every once in a while especially during the fall season.
