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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

Oklahoma Redbuds

Worked on a plein aire painting of the spring colors… Redbuds are the star of the Oklahoma landscape this time of year. I’ve always loved the dark brown color of the tree trunks and the lime green of the newly forming leaves with the pinkish/purplish redbuds… Love it…
