12 X 16 inch oil on stretched canvas
Not too good a photo...the colors aren't true. I took lots of shots, but this is about the best one.
This is my first application of color to the underpainting I posted last week. I want to let this layer dry before I go in and work on the trees on the right. I think I may be doing a lot of wiping off! Trees are a lot harder than apples and pots! LOL.
Also, for your viewing pleasure, I'm posting picture of some plants that survived our drought thanks to my husband. We moved into our house with new landscaping and within one week our neighborhood went to stage 4 water restrictions, meaning hand watering only, between 6 to 9 p.m. My husband stood outside in 100 degree heat every day for two months, watering our new trees and shrubs. We didn't loose any trees, but a few shrubs didn't make it. The majority survived, though and I'm thrilled that after our recent rains they are blooming their little heads off!
