Two Tree Paintings ... Turquoise Blue

I created these two small-sized paintings tonight!
I was into a turquoise blue palette.
Can you tell?

So, I tried to appreciate Palm Trees

I spent 3 days in Florida and viewed many varieties of palm trees.

I enjoyed viewing quite a few of them. The bark of these trees varies and is rather interesting. Also, I found the leaves or fronds of these trees to be attractive, as well.

Somehow, the shapes of Palm trees are not nearly as interesting to me, as the trees in the Northeast part of the U.S.A.

I really went out of my way to try and appreciate Palm and Coconut trees. My efforts were to no avail.

first drawing for 2008

This is my first completed work of art for 2008!
I started this drawing several months ago and decided to complete it.

It's a tree that seems to have spiders living within it.

I love bare trees......

I have always preferred the beauty of leafless trees. It is at this time that one can fully appreciate the shape of the tree's trunk and network of branches!

So many trees have exquisite shapes.

I could spend hours on flickr admiring photographs of leafless trees.
