"Spring Greens"

"Spring Greens"
6"X6" oil on canvas panel

I love this time of year when the trees are just starting to come out. It seems like there are more shades of green in the spring than in the other seasons. I did this study this morning out back of my local car dealership, while they were changing the oil. How's that for multi-tasking? Looking at Marc Hanson's four paintings a day for a month project has inspired me. It's time for plein air painting!

  1. Beautiful. I love the greens and noticed them even before I read your comments. Never knew an oil change could be this artful.

  2. You sure know how to maximize your time! I love the brilliance of the yellow-green and the simplicity of the composition. There are colors in nature that can be so garish (particularly in early spring)that they are hard to render on canvas. Great job!
