extra colorful

Okay...so this week has been meager on the postings...sorry...this way I can at least wish you all a good weekend with an image from last summer and a slightly exaggerated crabapple tree. The purples really got pushed in this painting, but I think sometimes a little extra push in a colorful direction can really spark your work. That extra "je ne sais quoi..."

I think this is beautiful Annelein. I sure wish I could paint half as well. I love the pushed purples!

I think this is my new favorite. Just beautiful. I love how the pond flows outside the edges and mimics the crabapple shape. Just all the way around wonderful.
