Spring Delight – Apple Blossoms

29 May

Although I said I would never paint them again – I am at it – and am planning at least one more.  

A number of years ago I painted a large watercolor of these delicate blossoms, sold it and received three commissions to do similar ones. And so I thought that I was apple blossomed out.
Only we have five mature apple trees and two young pear trees in our yard.  And they are truly beautiful.  Each year as the blossoms open, I am out in the yard photographing them.  Over and over.  And.. there are so darn many of them! This angle…that angle… maybe with more sky… maybe with less sky.  Obviously I am really attracted to this flower.  Maybe just to anything that blooms in the spring. 
So, once this painting is complete, I hope to paint another on a larger scale with the sky as the focal point – much like the painting Blue on Blue below.
