Currently, it's the Great Green August Lull. A time between the Summer Beauties and the Autumn Color Burst. Hottest August on record, ever, for this area. But somewhere in the world, right now, it must be spring. An art friend wanted to paint some Van Gogh inspired trees and she liked these with fruit blossoms (peach?). So we sat in the air conditioning and painted awhile. This is in my sketchbook. Note to self: If you close the book before the acrylic paint is THOROUGHLY dry, the pages WILL stick together. Ugh. Good thing I took this picture first!
