Early Autumn at Canaan Valley

I couldn't wait to finish a watercolor sketch of the early fall colors at Canaan Valley.  This view on Cortland Road is one of my favorites that I go back to every year.  Goldenrod and purple asters line the fences in September.  The hawthorn trees, which line the border of a little stream or marshy place, have already lost their leaves, and a few maple trees glow among the green of the spruces and other green trees.


  1. So lovely! I like how you captured the colored trees in the distance with those teal mountains behind.

  2. I love to sit and watch those pasture views too What a great spot. I bet
    the goldenrod and asters were covered in bees too! xox Corrine

  3. Sweet! Looks a lot like where I live.
