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.
