"Mohawk Rain"

When we were youngsters my mom and dad would take us for our annual visit to the Mohawk Trail to see autumns painting of the mountains. The drive would take us from Greenfield to North Adams MA. It was beautiful and there were the stops at the various restaurants and gift shops. They were memorable times.

There were years when we took our trip and the weather did not cooperate and the foliage had that dull look, pretty but not striking. I tried to create that look in the streamer below.


"Mohawk Rain"

The reds, yellows, browns, and gold of autumn...subdued.

      Justin it seemed to blend well, sort of that wet look even when dry.
