SUNNY SYCAMORE #1
I love everything about trees. They are my favorite landscape feature, and I love painting them. The Sycamore tree says "mid-west" to me, even though I have seen them in Paris lining the Seine. I love the lovely bark that sheds itself in the fall and the leaves as large as dinner plates that turn a lovely golden brown in the autumn. This particular Sycamore is along a bike path that I frequently use. On this day, the sun was glinting off the bark and lighting up the tree in a spectacular way. Because it is still spring, the leaves have not reached their full size and many of the branches are still visible.
