"SWEET SPRING, ARROYO SECO
Well, here it is, the final painting. I read everyone's comments about the adobe and I thought about keeping it, but when someone said the adobe seemed to have "eyes", I saw them and I just couldn't do it! So I adapted it and I love how it turned out. The sky feels like a watercolor and the trees remind me of cotton candy. This is actually from a photo taken up at my brother-in-law's place. The trees were in full blossom and I can't remember if they're apple or Indian plums. So, you will just have to look at them and imagine yourself walking through them, up the hill, to see what's on the other side.
