This Spring, a friend of mine from my high school days
let me know that her sister lived on an orchard that
was mere miles from my house, and that I was welcome
to go paint there. I got a great tour from my friend's
sister, and then did a quick study of a view of
the apple trees from the top of a hill.
When I got home, I realized right away that I wanted to
do a larger studio piece, because I loved the
way the blue of the mountains peeked through
the white and soft pink blossoms of the trees.
It is a gorgeous orchard, and hope I can go back
and paint there again next spring!
