After moving from Deleware back to Maryland, we are now staying in the Greenbelt area and this is the view we see looking out over a small pond with willows in the foreground, and a well-wooded lot beyond. Birds are attracted to the small flooded area beyond the pond where beavers have made their home, and we have had a few Bald Eagle flyovers as well as plenty of Red-shouldered Hawk sightings - there is a resident pair nearby (along with Barred Owls which we hear calling most evenings). I'm doing a series of paintings based on this view - mostly concentrating on the time when the leaves began to turn shortly after we arrived. This oil was painted on canvas board, size is 8 x 10 inches.
