Summer Paintings

Wolf Creek Morning
10 x 12, Oil
$400

I painted this back in July on one of those hot days we were having back then.
It certainly was a hot summer and I'm looking forward to a change in temperature and landscape as the autumnal colors begin to show.
I hope you enjoy the coming new season.
Peace,
Vincenza

It was another beautiful evening at the Spice Acres Plated Landscapes!
