Flowering Crab

"Flowering Crab"
16" x 20"
Oil on wrapped canvas
The Flowering Crab Apples have just finished strutting their stuff here in my part of Illinois. Their petals are blowing, snow globe-style across my neighborhood.  My spirit soars when I realize that the petals are NOT flakes of snow.  

This is another painting I started, oh, about a year ago. It seemed hopeless until I tackled it with my snippets of sponge. I evened out the color, gave it more depth and brightened the drab flowers.

Thanks for stopping to smell the flowers today.
