This little crab apple is from a tree in my backyard. I thought it would be fun to paint just one. I switched from painting on my canvas panels to an ampersand gessobord. I always like the smoothness of these boards, and it seems as if I have better control of the paint on them. I painted this picture late, so I couldn't take a very good picture of it. Plus, just as I was finished with it, I picked it up from the easel, and it dropped out of my hands!!!!! and it landed (of course) face down on the floor. Geeez! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but I think it might have a few little spots I have to fix up.
