"Catkins" - 12 x 9 Oil Tree and Mountain Painting
"Catkins" 12x9 Oil on board Plein Air Painting
A very brisk -3 April morning in Arrowstone Park. Birds going about their nesting and mate calling and the creek behind these aspens tuned my senses to the atmosphere. Sunlight catching on the catkins of the aspens made a garland of light against the blue of the distant mountain and that inspired this painting.
