My American Sycamore

Twenty six years ago we planted a small sycamore tree in the back yard. It conquered the dense clay soil and survived the strong winter winds. Today it's majestic in scale and the home to a baby swing and a birdfeeder. It offers dense shade in the summer and the interesting bark is a source of beauty.
I painted this from a photo taken in April before the tree leafed out. Its 8x10", acrylic on canvas. Price on request.
