I had grand plans for this plein air painting, but it was horribly hot outside, so I simplified the composition to give me time to finish before I melted. It was still pretty rushed, so it's not the best thing I've ever done, but I like the soft background and the pretty tree. I think it's a sweetgum tree, but I'm not sure. Oil on panel, 8" x 10".
Also, with this post I have theoretically enabled comments. This site is still in the testing phase, so I haven't told many people about it yet, and thus I don't expect any comments yet. But in coming weeks I hope that will change.
