paintings, watercolor

Trees move closer towards the spotlight for me, and I spent the better half of yesterday doing watercolor studies of some of my favorite, some to be used in a larger piece.  I sat on the ground to do most of these, while the mosquitos attacked and my daughter kept me company for a while.  The thought crossed my mind how wonderful it would be to plant a tree in honor of friends, family, loved ones and the sketch “If I Could Plant One Tree In Your Honor What Would It Be” ensued.
