Spring Plum Tree

I'm still playing with wet in wet techniques and thought I'd try to capture the flowering plum trees in a soft, colorful manner. Despite all the rain and freezing night temps, our flowering shrubs and trees have managed to hold onto their flowers - and though they're a bit less perky, they still look pretty good.

One more busy day and then a less hectic weekend -- thank heavens! We've more much needed rain, so we've had to postpone our art dedication until next week ... meantime, we'll be indoors preparing for the plant sale.

Stay dry!

Lin, I love your three post that I have missed. Your tree studies are wonderful. Your colors in the sky are amazing. Amazing work Lin.

Enjoy your weekend.

This one looks like it's doing a spring dance. The trees here are just barely showing some color, and if you search really hard there are a few crocuses poking their heads out of the ground. It is still too cold to spend much time outdoors sketching, so 2 other members of my group joined me yesterday in my portable studio.

Hope it is warm and sunny there! Enjoy.

Very springy looking, indeed. Painting "happy little trees" is fun.

So soft and pretty Lin. And springy.

Ooh, such a dreamy tree -- right out of fairy land -- it seems to be floating along on the strong spring winds of late. Lovely soft colors!
Big hugs,
