Two Trees

6 x 8 inches, oil on board.

I'm in denial of our actual weather. I keep painting these beautiful sunny scenes. I can't complain; the weather here hasn't been a hardship, just the usual rainy cold greyness. There are definite signs of spring, though. The trees are flowering and daffodils and other bulbs are open.

Anyway, I love trees. I like being around them and under them. I wish trees could vote.

I like this painting, as the one before, and the capturing of the sunlight is great. I get the feel of the warm sun, something that is missing now in these rainy and sometimes snowy March days. Looking forward to your continuing painting adventures in Portland, in Oregon and beyond the horizon.

My eye is drawn to the dark shed behind the trees. I suppose I have a natural affinity for out-buildings as mysterious solitary places from my childhood. I think I would have loved Long Island when it was just small fishing and farming villages.

Charles said… I too was drawn to the dark shed but while my eye tells me it is behind the tree, my mind tells me that some un-named person has levitated a small tree house to rest on a shadowy branch just far enough above the ground to afford privacy without risking injury to those "playing" inside should distractions allow levitation to be overcome by gravity. I like it.
