Mt. Norwottuck and Apple Trees I

Piece description from the artist

Only once a year does the Holyoke Mountain Range where I live in Western Massachusetts turn the ruby red that I so love to draw. But now I have to accept the turning of the season that flips the mountains back into their burnished siennas and umber-oranges. The winds and rains of Hurricane Sandy forced the leaves off the trees before I was ready to stop drawing. My drawing is now done for the season. The rain poured down at a 90 degree angle, trees bent almost parallel to the ground, and birds flew backwards. To further the point, soon enough the mountains will turn grey-beige, and then I have to wait a whole year all over again for ‘that ruby red’ to show up again.
