Spring Tree--Lake Anza

...Spring Tree--Lake Anza...
oil on linen panel - 6" x 8"

I went with some friends to Lake Anza, which is in a local park. People were there enjoying the sun and letting their dogs swim in the lake. I really liked this little tree, which was just starting to leaf out, but also starting to fall into the water. The lines of the branches were so graceful. 
I set-up my easel and started to paint. I got the underpainting on, but that really needed to set-up a bit so I could put on the next layer of paint on without smearing. So, I came home and finished it in the studio.


  1. Linda, you are so awesome! You captured that light perfectly! I wanted my sunglasses. Beautiful!
