What really drew my attention was the large tree stump in the foreground of the painting. It was about 7-8 feet in diameter and 10-15 feet tall. This Maple must have been 100-125 feet tall, when standing. What looks like re-growth of the same tree, is really a different species growing from seed in a hollow of the stump.
I was lucky enough to find someone else that also liked this scene. A kind lady from Milford purchased this painting at the wet paint sale that concluded the day.

Overlooking the Columbia-Tusculum neighborhood in eastern Cincinnati, this park sits on the hill's brow with views up and down the Ohio River and Lunken Airport. The pavilion is built from local limestone and is very appropriately Tuscan in flavor.

The Trumpet Flower Series is a group of paintings that are like close-ups from the Fence Row Series. I started painting these trumpet flowers just after doing some research for one of my stained glass windows. They are a native species to this region and can be found climbing over fence rows and up telephone poles out in the rural areas around here. The humming birds love them and they bloom for an extended period, from about mid-June till the end of August.
