PORTRAIT OF A TREE
Let me tell you the truth...
I participated in a weeklong plus three days
Starry Night Plein Air Event
The below painting is my
it couldn't be counted as plein air
as this crazy tree had a mind and limbs of its own
that didn't compute to any tree I knew
So tree and I fought
and I had to paint more than the maximum of the allowable 20% in the studio
Plein air paintings must be 80% done in fresh air.

and paint sky behind the tree in order for the tree to be
seen as a portrait
