Our family owns some beautiful property (100 acres) in Wayland, NY. Wayland is a small village south of Rochester. One morning, my husband suddenly woke me up very early and told me to grab my camera. We were going for a walk. The sunrise was spectacular! This painting is from one of my photos from that walk. The woods were all lit up from the morning sun, and we walked everywhere. I think I shot 3-4 rolls of film that morning and created several paintings from those photos. I'll share.

Very nice. I really like the feel of this painting. Well balanced and captivating. I have come back viewed this image a few times. Each time it holds my attention just as long as the time before it. The warm colors in the trees with the white on ground could very well make this a scene typically found here in Iowa. However, this year we have been very lucky. Very little snow and above average temps. Can't complain about that!
