Trees.  So much a part of the landscape. Today I’ve been working on selecting paintings for an exhibit, and I was amazed at how many paintings of trees I have. Sometimes I go out to paint with the plein air group, and they all want to paint a home or barn.  But I often focus on the tree in front of the porch or the old oak in the yard.  The trees seem to be more enduring than the architecture.  Also, I’m attracted by light coming from behind the trees, drawing me in to see what is around the bend as in this path on James Island.

This small painting was an early morning view from the fishing dock at James Island County Park.  The tide was high so there was quite a bit of water showing among the marsh grasses.  I used the long horizontal format to emphasize the peaceful feel of the morning.

Last weekend, the plain air painting group traveled to James Island County Park near Charleston, SC.  This small piece was painted early Saturday morning from the fishing dock looking back toward the edge of the marsh.
