Under the Apple Tree

Under the Apple Tree, 16x20,oil/panel
$500, unframed
If you're wondering where the "flower-a-day" paintings have gone, that project is still alive and kicking. I however, have been under the weather and had to skip a few days. No great loss as the weather has been dreary this past week. Today though was an absolutely gorgeous day and boy do we deserve it after all the rain and gloom. I had a paint-out at the Florence Griswold Museum of American Impressionism in Old Lyme CT today. This is a morning painting of an adorable little garden shaded by an apple tree. The museum has just completed a 14 month restoration/renovation of the Florence Griswold House, returning it to the way it looked when it was a summer boarding house for artists, most notably Childe Hassam, circa 1910. Today was the 10th Annual International Sketchcrawl, which I also participated in today. You can see my sketches from today at Pen, Pencil & Paper. You can read all about the 1oth Annual International Sketchcrawl here.
