This is a fine large scale oil painting on canvas by the Kentish artist David Mead.
The painting depicts a lavish green and brown autumnal view, with the majority of the trees wearing their autumn leaves, with a majestic oak in the right foreground. Below the trees and to the left of a path, lies a still pool in whose quiet waters the trees are reflected.
