Latest in what may become a series of paintings involving trees (like Autumn, which features a Bradford pear). While no tree was the model for this, I sense that this is a red maple.
The painting is called Mistletoe House. Like almost all my square watercolors, it's 19 inches on a side (the largest image I can get on a stretched piece of stock Arches 140 pound hot press). I was trying for a feeling of spring - the wind, the hint of green in the tree limbs, without any actual leaves yet, the softer light, etc.
