This is a photo that I took this week while hiking at Shiloh National Civil War Park.  The colors are really starting to show themselves for the time of year, and it is a wonderfully beautiful landscape to behold.  So now what do I do with it?  Is it better to just leave it alone, a photo worth admiring? Or can I use it as an inspiration for a painting?  Where is the composition?  Where should I start? Should it be done as an illusionery, impressionist piece? or maybe crop in close and concentrate on a path in the woods?  Is it too much of a photo to really make a painting?  I am asking YOU what you would do with this autumn inspiration...I am overwhelmed by the possibilities and stumped!
