Redbud season

"Redbud Season," 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artisitico cold press


Everywhere
you go these days in Oklahoma, one color stands out. S
tands out against the greening trees, other bare branches, the coming spring.

Redbuds.

We've lost six trees to ice and cold this past year, and it's time to plant a redbud.

April has not been a good month for me, in painting, or in blogging. No excuses, but driving around, and shopping in a nursery does help. In the meantime, here's today's little impressionistic watercolor.
