Grandfather Tree at Dusk - June 27. 09

I spent the day painting in my "Summer Studio" (my screen porch) What started out to be a rainy, muggy day turned into a beautiful, sunny one with low humidity and cooler temps. Heaven. At the end of the day I decided to do a quick plein air study of my favorite tree. Quick it was! I think the light changed faster than I could decide what color it was so this was done in about twenty minutes. It's very loose, but there is a freshness to it. I will be adding it to the rest of my Grandfather Tree series.
