By now the Appell family should have gotten their gift as well so I think I'm safe posting a photo of it. The Appells live in a heavily wooded area on Long Island and every year when we have our board retreat at their house it's fall time. The leaves are so pretty! And the road going up to their house is curvy like this. I didn't take a photo when I was there, but I found some photos in some photography books that reminded me of it and used those, in combination with my memory, to paint this. It's very impressionistic. But then again, several of the famous impressionists were also legally blind! Go figure.
