"Autumn's Hidden Sanctuary" ~ 30"x24" A Painting a Day Hudson River School Autumn New York Landscapes by Connie Tom

There's something about going for a hike in the autumn woods that is so relaxing and invigorating. It gets your mind off of the business of this world and on to the beauty of nature. Woodland animals seem to compete with each other... attracting your attention from one moment to the next. You look up and see how freely and easily the squirrels scamper from one limb to the next, the birds are singing and usually there's a breeze in the trees swaying the limbs causing a flurry of beautiful colorful leaves to cascade down around you. The air is fresh and wholesome and the sun glints light off the moisture on thousands of leaves like sparklers. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed painting it! ~ Connie
This work was chosen for the Calendar Art last year by the South Fork Natural History Museum located in Long Island in Bridgehampton, New York

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." ~ Romans 8:37-39.
