Oil Painting - Spring Red Buds

 'Spring Red Buds', 5 x 7, Oil on canvas board
The group met at Highbanks Metro Park yesterday. It was brisk - about 45 degrees with gusty winds. Bbrrrrrr. I stayed in the parking lot and painted outside the back of my mini SUV so that the door would shield me from the wind. This was a scene of red bud trees, but not sure I captured the correct color. They've always been a favorite tree. When I was growing up, we had one in the back yard and I always was amazed that the flower actually grew from the bark, instead of off a stem.
