Asheville...art, mountains, trees

I just got home from visiting
a lovely place.....
Asheville, North Carolina.
Yes, I think of art, mountains and trees
when I think of Asheville.
Many lovely things, but those are
ingrained in my memory forever.

When I returned home I had to do some art of my own,
so I painted this.....
...to remember my trip.

Savor the Day!

Your painting is absolutely wonderful Yvonne - I actually thought it was an altered photo at first. Good job!!

Oh Yvonne, this is beautiful! It has a focal point, beautiful and harmonizing color, composition, and warm emotion. Sorry, my art school days come out sometimes. I could have just said it has everything. That about covers it. Lovely!

P.S. LOVE your colorful sprouting paint brushes.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog, even when I didn't have time to return the favor. I love your painting. You have such a magic flair with paint and drawing.

I tried to catch up, too. It is horrible about the Texas fires, but I'm glad to see there is some growth returning to this ravaged area.

And I agree. Who doesn't love trees? I remember when a company wanted to bring their truck into my driveway and wanted to cut (annihilate) the branch that extends across it. I wouldn't let them because it would have put the tree out of balance, which would have been bad for the tree. I saw what happened when the neighbor cut a portion of his tree away. It caused problems whenever the wind was in the wrong direction.

Again, thanks for visiting. I always appreciate it.
