Sumac patch by country road

Early autumn, my sister Francesca and I were in the Kingston area on an equestrian clinic, and at breaks would walk down this delightful little county road. I made a sketch of this vivid spot in nature. It is said that a tea made from the fruit of the sumac has all the nutrients needed to sustain a person for many days, should they be lost in the forest.
