GETTING BACK INTO IT!

Part of the task when I have been away from my art for a time is to saturate myself in visuals for inspiration!  Aside from all those getting back chores...laundry, errands, pay that bill I forgot...etc, I take my camera EVERYWHERE with me to snap pics of whatever may catch my eye for the goal of finding subject matter!  I was having some paperwork copied and saw this fabulous crab-apple tree in the median of the shopping mall!  At least I think they are crabapples!  FUN!

I came home with a commission to do a sunflower piece...just a fun little 6x6, but I'm on it...If you've been reading I've only posted a BUNCH of sunflower pics...and of course I have plenty of reference, so I'm on that assignment too! I won't use this one as it doesn't fit the client's criteria, but it is the ONE and ONLY little sunflower that has survived our deer up here on the mountain, so I had to post it...such a delicate and pretty little thing!
So, it's off to Cripple Creek to attend a function for my husband's business, and then...aside from looking for houses...BACK TO PAINTING!! YEA!!

HAPPY CREATING!

That is the second time I've seen a crabapple with that plum type of shape. Someone else painted one not too long ago. At any rate, I am surprised because the crabapple tree I used to have in my yard had little hard round apples. I made jelly out of them and they were hard hard hard, which made it more difficult to cut when I made the jelly. Must be several types of crabapples, I'm guessing. Interesting to know! Congrats on the commission too!

I KNOW...at first I thought it was a cherry tree...but some had been pecked on and they weren't cherries...so, what else could they be??
