Full Bloom
9x12”  oil on canvas

This was painted for The Virtual Paintout which is a painting challenge that uses Google Street View at a different location each month to paint or draw the landscape as if you were really there. This month we visited the Balkan country of Montenegro. On the Adriatic coast, it has mountains and harbors, old towns and new developments. However, what really caught my eye was this wonderful flowering tree in full bloom. (You can see it here.)  It provided such beautiful color, and created such pleasant shade in the yard, it seems like a perfect place to live, and was certainly a pleasant place to paint!

This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed, but you could hang it up just as it is.
