Crabapple Tree Plein Air | Outdoor painting in the neighborhood




 I love staying close to home.  I think there is something fascinating that happens when you take the time to really observe the area around your home.  I painted this little plein air piece of a flowering tree I discovered in the neighbors yard.  With all of those small petals being hit by the later morning sun, there was asoftness to the pink tree that contrasted wonderfully against all of the other trees and plants around it.
