It’s another gray day in Georgia but I find today’s sunny landscape painting a good antidote since it has all the warm, cheerful colors of fall. This is a painting of Panola State Park, one of my favorite nearby places to hike. 
I painted this scene from a photo taken from the PATH Foundation Trail. This is a 12-mile paved trail that connects Panola Mountain with Arabia Mountain. Panola Mountain also has a watershed trail which follows a small creek that winds through the woods, empties into several rivers, and eventually into the Atlantic Ocean. The Park has large rock outcrops and as you can see from this scene, the remains of an old family farm. It’s beautiful and well worth a visit if you’re ever in Rockdale or DeKalb county Georgia.
