Mission San Juan 12"x12" $225.00

I think painting bright full sunshine is hard.  The colors have to be very high key.  This was the case with this painting.  I'm also still learning to paint trees.  The limbs always get slimmer as they get longer and new growth of foliage is always lighter in color.  So everything gets lighter and airier(?) as it branches out away from the core tree trunk.  I love these Live Oak trees in Texas.  They seem almost oriental like a big Bonsai tree with all their twists and turns.
