A Little Side Note ~ Oklahoma Redbuds

Some time when I was pondering this Painter’s Block, I did this plein aire painting of the Oklahoma Redbuds.

I’m happy to say that this painting was featured on Open Studio Online. 🙂

It is probably evident that I have really been trying to be looser with my brush strokes, looser and more relaxed with my paintings in general. I think this is why I lack confidence, because I’m so nit-picky about details. This is one of the areas I realized that was causing this painter’s block. It is often scary going out of our comfort zones; we have to be willing to not just “test the waters”, but jump in. 🙂
