Spring in PA

A friend of mine posted a picture of her mother's house on facebook. The picture is of the front yard, flowers and trees up in Pennsylvania. It struck me as a beautiful possibility for an acrylic endeavor. So, I decided to give it a try. At first, it didn't look as if it was going to be very realistic looking. I guess paintings never start out that way, they take form as one paints. I didn't become discouraged, rather, I purposed to recreate the scene as best I could. When I sent a picture of the painting to my cousin in LA, she asked me what kind of tree was that one in the middle. I told her that I wasn't sure, that it was a painting of a picture. She did not believe me....she thought it was an actual picture... WOW, what a compliment!! It was fun painting this one, so I am looking forward to do some more like it; more scenes, more nature, more realistic views. The possibilities are endless....
