And the trees whisper

And the trees whispered

We are being treated to some amazing cloud displays here in Dorset. One minute blazing sunshine the next heavy cloud bursting with rain. Celebratory bright sunlight that turns the rain silver and makes the yellow in the trees sparkle against purple/blue skies. Inspiration for the above painting, the wind picks up and the trees whisper, I hold my breath...

Beautiful, wonderful golden sparkles in these trees. Love the muted colors, too.

Hi there Lisa!... How strange! The weather here is very similar... "in and out"... but again with such dramatic sky effects... especially in the evening!

And you're so right Lisa... the trees do Whisper... and sigh... especially the tall white pines!!

Brings a song line to mind:

"Every little breeze... seems to whisper Louise"

A lovely evocative painting!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
Bruce

This is a beautiful piece, Lisa. It's so full of light and the depth of the forest pulls me in.

Hi Rhonda, thank you. We've had such grey days this week and it seems to have effected my palette ;o)

Hi Maggie - thank you!

Hello Bruce, I did't know the song so googled it. I listened to Dean Martin and a Maurice Chevalier's version. The latter gave me jazz hands ;o) Thank you about the painting.

Hi Zoe, thank you for popping over. I hope things are getting easier for you, take care of yourself.

Hi Michael, thank you :o)
