The Picnic Place

Right outside our house in Fearrington Village is a patch of land with a picnic table used for an occasional block party.  I enjoy seeing the morning light, especially when the fall colors begin.

I know it's Spring, but I've been meaning to paint this since last fall, and just got to it now.

Working from this enlarged photo, I tried to keep pretty true to the composition, eliminating a bench and simplifying the shapes and colors.

Spring is inspiring me, so stay tuned for more seasonal painting.....maybe even an Easter bunny!

What's your favorite season to paint?
