Spring at Femme Osage

Spring at Femme Osage
Oil on panel, 14x11

The Femme Osage Creek is such a special place, steeped in timeless beauty!  It winds and twists all through the Augusta region, and I have painted it many times.  Today, I am capturing the beauty of the redbuds as their magenta blooms sparkle against the new leaves of spring.  Often times, these blossoms show up before the green of trees - but not this year! They seem to be “on time” while all other blooming trees were early!  It feels like coming home to paint the landscape in oils again, a wonderful warm up for the plein air days to come!  This painting makes 1195 in 1195 days.
