"Aspen groves always draw me in with the sound of leaves quaking in the breeze. Their golden canopy beautifully contrasting against their majestic trunks. Each capturing hues of reflected light all around. Deeper I walk into the forest.  While painting, lost in the woods, its title drifted clearly into focus, The Road Less Traveled. Poetic words of Robert Frost danced through my mind. I too shall choose the road less traveled…" Lucy Dickens

"The Road Less Traveled" depicts a serene landscape, capturing the essence of autumn. The focal point of the painting is a cluster of aspen trees with vivid yellow leaves, standing prominently in the foreground. The leaves are painted with varying hues of yellow and ochre, showcasing the rich palette of fall. Behind the trees, a gentle clearing extends into the distance, sprinkled with patches of similar yellow foliage that have also adopted the autumnal change. In the background, the terrain subtly rises to form rolling hills, and above them, a mountain range is faintly visible through a soft, atmospheric haze, adding depth to the composition. The sky above is a tranquil shade of blue, with traces of clouds, contributing to the calm and placid mood of the scene. Overall, the painting conveys the quiet beauty of an autumn landscape, with a harmonious blend of colors and a peaceful ambiance.
