November Tree

"November Tree" By Mary Maki Rae -2014(c)
**************************************
The sun has shown so brightly in my Studio these past days - creating a rich -golden glow Inside.
On the Tree outside the leaves are appearing in every shade of Red - Orange - Gold - and Umber - and many have fallen upon a mossy Green velvet ground.
The effect is much too beautiful to dismiss lightly - I felt so inspired to paint this Tree before all the leaves had flown away.
