Oil Painting at Patty's House

I painted yesterday afternoon at my friend Patty's house - her beautiful redbud tree.  Three of us painted the tree and we all had very different results.  It never ceases to amaze me that painters can start with the same subject and come up with such different results.
This oil painting is 8" x 10" and is painted on a canvas panel.  The weather was beautiful and there is nothing like the spirit you have when painting with good friends.

You are right on 2 counts - I treasure both my painting friends and painting time we share; and no 2 painters ever see things the same!

Oh that would be so cool to see different interpretations of the same thing!

This is so beautiful, Barbara. I would love to see the other two versions as well.
