551 Autumn Forest

It was an an amazingly beautiful day at Goldstream Park. The autumn colours are so inspiring! The salmon are swimming upstream to spawn. Thousands of them. It's an amazing spectacle. The smell of rotting fish is in the air as well. It's a seagull and eagle buffet. The forest is amazing too. Old growth towering overhead and branches blackened and covered with moss twisting at strange angles.  At first I thought these branches are so clumsy and considered painting them with more graceful curves. But once I really gave them my attention I realized they had a grace of their own. I painted them just as I saw them.
