The street famous in my mind forever for its yellow leaved trees every fall peaked in color last week, and it’s only a matter of days I think before all the sunny foliage is on the ground or scooped into brown bags and thrown away. These trees have elegant branches. They are Hickory Trees.

P.S. I started this painting with the blue sky. Ultramarine blue. It was the first time I really “saw” the negative blue space to paint between the clouds in a watercolor fashion than ever before. Center left is a small patch of phthalo blue sky. I’ve looked at clouds from both sides  now, lol! I just had to add that lyric from an old, many decades ago song.
