Don’t you love finding quiet pathways where you can wander about and enjoy some down time, especially during the Autumn months. As if on cue, Mother Nature gives us a gift every Fall sprinkling magical colors here and there making nature walks all the more special.
I found such a place that I fell immediately in love with that made for a perfect oil pastel painting. Photographer Roy Simmons, of pmp, took a fantastic shot of a pathway that I used as a reference image. I hope you enjoy my latest ~ Mary
Beautiful….as always my friend.
Thank you so much Mei! Mary
stunning! I love the color, especially the oranges.
Hi Linda: thank you so much for your comments. I was a bit timid w/the burnt sienna and oranges and then decided to just go with it. Thank you – appreciate hearing from you. Mary
Sentinels, dressed in ruddy robes and chryselephantine scarves, guard the pathway of this enchanting autumn day.

Thank you, your comment is really appreciated. Autumn colors is what drew me to paint the scene.
It is a magical place. I’m floored the way you are able to wield an oil pastel.
Hi Elena, thank you for the kind compliment. It’s a fun medium to work with once you get used to it – artist soft oil pastels are much easier to work with (Senneliers, Holbiens and Neopastels the best). Thanks again! Mary
Mary, it’s absolutely wonderful!!! I LOVE it!!
Hi Calee – thanks so much for your comment!
