Orchard Trees

Orchard Trees original 8" x 10" oil painting on canvas

“Orchard Trees” 8″x 10″ oil on canvas – framed

 

With the shift in weather I am slowly stepping back outside and engaging in the adventure of painting “en plein air”.  This isn’t without hesitation!  To be honest I was rather fearful yesterday and unsure as to whether or not I wanted to go plein air painting.  I had fear of the blank canvas….  However, I was moved to visit this orchard and didn’t pressure myself to paint but came prepared.  As I walked around and talked with some of the owners I felt more relaxed and inspired.  I knew there would be quite a few people visiting as they were hosting a wine tasting weekend but I didn’t let that hold me back.  I had a very nice days visit. Found a lovely spot among the fruit trees and feel good about my painting experience mostly because I overcame my fear.
