While watering my garden this morning I noticed how the sun sharply lite the top of a Live Oak. It’s lacy outline was accentuated by a backdrop of dark shadows. As the branches faded in and out of the shadows the reflected light shimmered. I realized everything I needed to know about Oak trees was right there! The inspiration every artist needs. Yes the trumpets were playing and the angels came down from the heavens so, I ran and grabbed my drawing bag! What a great morning.
