Outside A Window

I love the view of this crabapple tree outside my kitchen window:

This photo was taken in May when the tree was showing its spectacular pink blossoms!

I decided to add a photo of it to my mixed media sketchbook as the tree inspires me all four seasons!  I colored the photo with color pencils so the flowers stood out.

And below is the Robin that I painted and showed you in my last post:

Inspiration of place can sometimes come from what we see outside a window in our home… Below is a photo of both pages together in my art journal.

What view inspires YOU, outside a window?  I hope you share it with me!

Cheers! 🙂

Branching Out

I started an online class with Diane Culhane yesterday called, “The Love of A Tree.”  You can find out more about it here:  http://www.carlasonheim.com/for-the-love-of-a-tree-diane-culhane/I enjoy taking classes from Diane as she is a wonderful teacher and I love her whimsical style!  Plus she paints with lots of color like me!  🙂

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of my tree photos.

Hope you branch out and try something new today!  I’d love to hear what you do!

Cheers!  🙂

 

Four Seasons of Color

I hope you enjoy seeing my glorious Crabapple tree as each season unfolds into a new one like color blends on an artist’s palette.

Bountiful Spring blossoms in raspberry pink:

Fall bursts with color in gold leaves and bright red fruit:

Winter’s crimson berries provide a feast for the birds:

Each season is a reason to celebrate!
