Autumn in Wisconsin is one of the most inspirational experiences that an artist can have. Addicted as I am to being outdoors when the weather is nice, I naturally take my camera along to capture all the beautiful scenery. I love the fall because it gives me such wonderful reference for all of the studio painting that I do during the winter. This painting, "Riding Through November" was an absolutely stunning sight. A man on a bicycle slipped past me on the leaf covered path I was walking on. The trees were ablaze in their bright yellows and oranges.
