Here is my second painting in my new Spring series. I have a stack of reference photos that are calling out to be painted. It is my goal to capture the colors and freshness of the spring landscape. It is a challenge because here in the Southeast we are blessed with so many flowering trees and sbrubs. The riot of color can be unreal at times....so I will try to simplify and do this season justice. I painted this on white Wallis paper instead of my usual grey with hopes it would give me a lighter feeling.
