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.
