Windy Peninsula

"Windy Peninsula"
8" x 10"
Oil on hardboard

The wind that afternoon floated me to interesting places without much effort. I sped past a bed of water lilies in full bloom, rendering their photos a blurred mess. But as I was ready to round this peninsula wind from two directions stopped me here in front of this narrow strip of land. 

I have a favorite brush for painting pine trees.  It's not particularly expensive, or of high quality like my British Rosemary & Co. brushes. Nor is it as inexpensive as my cut-up sponge pieces, yet it paints the limbs on pines with a finesse that I've sought for years.  

Thank you for drifting by today.
