Last Maples - Abstraction

This "Indian Summer" continues. It's nearly mid-November, and we can hike with just a fleece jacket. Who wouldn't go out and paint today?

I'm continuing my series of little abstractions - and this one is really abstract! If I didn't title it "Last Maples," you might have trouble telling what it is. But does it matter? I think there's enough going on for the eye to linger for awhile. Light and dark, warm and cool, red and green - it's a study in contrasts. What do you think?

Beautiful, Mike. A different look, but so special!
