Fall Tree


Fall Tree

9X12 oil on canvas

Fall in these parts is beautiful.  I painted this tree back in November when the leaves still looked like this.  This is one of my favorite trees and I’m pretty sure it’s a favorite of lots of locals.  It’s right on the river along the greenbelt.  It’s huge with branches that branch out in all directions from its base.  There used to be an enormous branch that shot straight out to the side low to the ground that kids liked to climb on.  But it got chopped.

I took a Plein Air painting class in the fall and this was influenced by it.  I worked from a photo on this one.  I didn’t want to stand outside in the cold alone to paint this tree.  I’ll post my actual Plein Air painting another day.
