Let the earth bring forth…the fruit tree

DickBlick Premium Tempera on canvas, 6″x8″

In an effort to become more social, I visited an open painting group at the Senior Center in my home town today. My nervousness was 100% unwarranted! The ladies in the group were immensely welcoming (and hilarious to boot).

They warned me the staff often comes down the hall and shuts the door to the small room “with a flourish,” because of all the laughter. I guess, as my throat was feeling a bit rough from my contribution to the noise level, I’d have taken pride at contributing to such a door-shutting today.

It never happened. There’s always next Wednesday…Lord willing.


NOTE: the painting is based on this photo, from Paint My Photo, a terrific free site for photographers AND painters. This is my “gallery,” to which I’ll need to add this picture.


And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. (Genesis 1:11)
