Description of Wissahickon Story
This oil painting was started on location and finished in my studio. The location is near Valley Green along the Wissahickon Creek, Forbidden Drive, Philadelphia, Pa. Painted on a gorgeous autumn day. I really liked the silhouette of the old tree against the bright autumn colors. My friend told me that the painting is telling a story of how winter is coming. Also I feel that the old trees along the stream certainly could tell many stories of all the people who have visited Forbidden Drive over the years.
