With Lake Wallenpaupack as it’s backdrop, the red tree just begged to be painted. After posting the sketch on my Facebook page, a fan quickly inquired as to it’s availability. It was sold after a few exchanges. It would be a gift to her parents, as they live on the lake.
When I pulled the condo curtains back the next day, the red leaves were gone, stripped by the wind and rain. The gift of it’s beauty recorded only on paper.
All had fallen into place.
