Painted on location during a beautiful spring day - I could hear the leaves rustle in this tree when the breeze would stir. The leaves on this tree had just emerged from their buds and were a lovely shade of green.
This quiet spot is located in the Irvine Regional Park in Orange, California. I set out that morning to paint a portrait of a tree to further my understanding of their structure. What you see is my response to this subject the morning I created this, it’s an honest interpretation of what I saw that day, hence the title – “Honesty.”
