Purple trees

After my post earlier this week about the seasons changing way too soon, I thought I’d lighten it up a bit by bringing in some spring. The seasons do not rule my painting!

I’ve had many people admire my purple trees. I don’t know why I like to paint them; they are just fun. So, here’s another purple tree that is available. I imagine myself lying on the ground looking up through the branches of this tree and watching the clouds float by.

So what is it?

That missed step is: Have Fun!

Have fun! Through it all, have fun.
