Spring Trees

Spring Trees
10 x 12


This past Sunday I should have been in my studio-I really should. But, it was such a gorgeous spring day and friends offered to take us over to a nearby ranch. It's a property of about 1100 acres that I would never had access to without their generous offer. So, off we went in pick up trucks and 4 wheelers. There were creeks and pools (ponds) and big hills! Trees were leafing out and red buds lit up the mauve and green haze. It was heavenly.

I painted this little study from memory today.

Beautiful! What medium and ground did you use? Sounds like a wonderful day and a beautiful place as well.

Beautiful memory painting with a feeling a quiet, yet filled with the hope of Spring.

Hmm...for some reason, this post only just now showed up on my blogroll list, even though it was posted almost a week ago. Strange.

Anyway, it is wonderful, and made even more impressive by the fact it was from memory!

So soft, moody, and gentle.
