Grove



8" x 10" oil on hardboard

This is another scene from Vilnius. A rural area outside the city. I assume these are birch trees, but I'm no botanist, so I left the title vague. For that matter, I'm not sure what constitutes a "grove." I'll leave these technical details to the scientists.

Nice weather is approaching, so I'm hoping to get out of the studio and do more plein air work. I tried to go out to the arboretum Monday, but it was so cold and windy I gave up. One good thing about painting in the winter - the sun is always low, so you can go out almost any time of day and get nice light and shadows. This time of year that advantage is starting to dwindle, and I'll need to go earlier or later.

  1. Love this, Marla. I saw some of these trees on the paintout too, and wondered if they were birch. They are very striking.
