"Richardson Road" -- plein air field study -- oil on canvas -- 8x10" -- Margie Guyot
The other day I'd been driving along this road and saw these wonderful dark maroon shrubs all over in this field. Maybe they're some kind of dogwood? I wanted to get over to this spot and paint it on my day off. Thankfully, it was fairly sunny this morning and relatively warm for October. There was a grove of maples and pines in the background. The colors are changing very fast up here, along Lake Michigan, from fiery reds and screaming oranges to more muted tones.
