In the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains we stopped to walk the dog near a lake and looked around at the bright beautiful leaves. There was a willowy tree with bright yellow leaves reflecting in the water. The scene was pleasing to the eyes an I snapped a quick photo. It was a scene that crept back a few days later and painted it in my studio. So many simple and beautiful scenes in our world.
