TREE BY THE ROAD By Cecelia Lyden

acrylic on canvas
I found this tree in Boiling Springs one early spring afternoon. Is there anything more "lively" than a tree with all its branches and twigs exposed. A friend suggested that I paint the tree as it looked in all the seasons. I thought it was a great idea, but when I went back that summer, the same tree looked like a large lifeless lump--was not inspiring. I may try to find and paint it this fall.
