The smoke was pretty thick yesterday evening when I painted this study, however the winds last evening blew a lot of it away so it is clearer today. The sun near sunset yesterday was brilliant red from the dense smoke. It was pretty, but it is nice to not be breathing so much of it today. We have had at least one night of freezing temperatures and the maple trees have started to bronze already; autumn feels early this year, it isn't even September yet. Study, 10x7", Oil on Linen.
