I just returned from a few weeks in the mountains of western North Carolina. We have an October trip planned, to take in the beautiful fall colors, which I am really anticipating. Until then, I will have to be satisfied with our Florida type of tree. They have a beauty of their own....not really big leaves or bright colors, but graceful palms and huge live oaks draped in Spanish moss and with limbs that seem to be a mile long.

These don't have Spanish moss, but I was taken by their entwined limbs, like they are giving each other a hug and will be best friends forever.
I painted this with a palette knife and I used a technique I call "color weaving". It gives me lots of texture and I can get really subtle color changes. I have a nice wide molding in a dark wood tone that I will use to frame this one. I think it will make it pop off the wall!
I hope to get many photos of fall color in the mountains next month....it's my favorite time of the year!
