I probably should get a bumper sticker that reads "I Stop for Paintings"! I was driving down a road early one morning about two months ago when I saw this Sycamore out in a field just begging for someone to take notice...and I did... It positively glowed with the morning light, so I whipped my car up along the side of a muddy cow field, got out my trusty camera and took lots of pictures in the hopes of capturing all of the colors I was seeing in that silvery bark. This is the resulting painting, which I started working on as soon as I got home.

One of my favorite times of the year is when the leaves just start to pop out in the Spring, and there is that light haze of color. I was out taking pictures one day, and just happened to turn around to see this bare tree in a field. Even though I never intended to paint this, I took a picture just because I thought it was beautiful.
Of course when I got home and downloaded the pictures I had taken that day, this was one of my favorites. What I like to call a lucky accident!
