Spring Robin


Spring Robin
The Almond tree in our backyard just started getting blossoms on it yesterday. It served as a good model for this painting a few years back. I can't wait for Spring!

Lovely job Michelle. Very effective portrayal of 3 dimensions by putting the background out of focus and rendering the fore in sharp detail. Great visual balance and color harmony. You should be quite happy with this one!

Thanks, William.

You're funny, Ron. Thanks.

Michelle, this is beautiful - my favorite painting by van gogh is "almond blossoms" - do you have any pics of your tree?

Michelle Smith said...

Thanks Adrienne! I will have to take a photo of the tree and post it. I'll wait until it's fully in bloom.

Michele, Your work is so wonderful! And Thank you for posting your pieces in stages so often, it's great to learn from other artists. I have to say, for obvious reasons, this one is my fave!!!! :)
