The wind is blowing a lot of the leaves off the trees however there are still areas of absolutely brilliant colour. I actually saw this view from two concessions over because it was glowing so brightly.
I had another first, for me, as a plein air artist. I finished my painting, packed up and headed to Tews Falls. A white pickup truck followed me all the way from Fallsview Rd to the parking lot at Tew's. The driver said that he saw my car parked with the trunk open and now there is a pile of garbage by the side of the road. He accused me of dumping it. I explained that I would be more likely to pick garbage up than to dump it and showed him my painting. He seemed to accept that.
