Backyard Trees


This was my second Plein Air effort yesterday. I love painting the branches of pine trees, the bulk of them. This piece is 8x10 alla prima. ...

... I also took another crack at the "Lifeguard" from Different Stokes Challenge. This time I did it as an ACEO

Those of you who receive my email newsletter know that I am grouping all my eBay auctions to end on either Tuesday night or Friday afternoon. My thoughts are that summer is just too short to spend it near the computer monitoring ebay. There are 8 ACEO pieces ending tomorrow and 5 more on Friday - including this Lifeguard. See them all here

What perfect trees! Reminds me a bit of the impressionist feel to the piece and I love it.
