As the biggest plants on earth, trees not only provide us with oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil, and enrich the world's wildlife, they are absolutely beautiful in all seasons. I just love trees and this is why I live in a temperate rain-forest.  If you get a chance, paint a tree! Better yet, plant one!

15 minute painting


I was driving up Brevard Road and noticed this bucolic scene once again.  I came home, took out a 16 x 20 inch canvas and painted it in acrylic. I used, red, white, blue, yellow and three greens; phthalo, olive and light. It took about 15 minutes.  I took a picture with my phone and added a poster edge filter in Photoshop and here you have it.
