Mesquite Bouquet

Mesquite Bouquet, 6 x 6

Anyone who has spent much time in West Texas can easily spot a mesquite tree--they're quite common and are usually small and often found in groups, thus the name here.

I find I'm in a tree phase again, and these 6 x 6 panels are a nice size for a study of one tree, one subject, but I'm itching for several hours to do something larger. December madness dictates otherwise, I guess.

Beautiful as always, love the burst of light coral at the horizon; very well done.

I met Ann Rogers yesterday at the SWGallery and saw Laurel's paintings, along with an impressive amount of plein air paintings. You are so very fortunate to study with her! Take care.

Hi Julie,

I love this. It reminds me of the round pines in Italy, although they're not the same. You are a super painter. It's so nice to be able to look at your work again.
