Soon to be on display Petrov Gallery in Broad Ripple!
Finding beauty in the half-dead! haha Yes, here's the tree by our garage...it's in rough shape to say the least. I've hardly even noticed it really, until one night when I was out playing with the kids. I was amazed by the color variation on these leaves...and that electric bright green on the stems... STUNNING, absolutely 'yummy'! So I ran and got my camera and snapped a bunch of pics. I really enjoyed painting this...and thanks to the comments on my Facebook page, I found out what type of tree this is...a Smoke Tree. I learned that if I take the time to notice, I can find beauty in unexpected places! :)
