challenge 245--something "October"


The fall colors this year are incredible. While I sat across the street and painted this, my elementary-school-age neighbor saw me and came out with her art supplies and painted with me. It was fun.

I should probably refine this a little, but I might not. I didn't draw anything first--just went at it right away with paint.
