Fanno Creek Wetlands

I`ve been walking Cook Park in Tigard which is mostly closed to cars  in the winter. The marshes look sensational though I got wet feet getting close enough to see them well. In summer, there are baseball and soccer games going on and it`s filled with people. This time of year, the park is empty and wild.

Very soothing. There are still that many autumn leaves left on the trees? Or did you paint this some time ago?

The sycamore leaves are still on the trees here, some brown, and some dark red-brown (though tons have blown off in recent storms; the lawns and driveways across the street are littered with fallen leaves), but most of the other deciduous species are bare now.
