460 Old and Stately
This painting was painted at the John Turner Trust property in Door County, WI on the first day of our plein air painting trip and finished this week in the studio. It was a beautiful day until the skies opened up and drenched us. We took a break for lunch, and then the skies cleared, when I painted my favorite of all the trip's works. This tree had the most unusual colored mosses growing on it--a rusty gold color I had never seen before, and a patina green that was a lovely contrast.
