Apple Blossom Time - sold

5"x7" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

I LOVE this time of year in New England! Every kind of flowering tree is blooming and the place looks like an impressionist painting. I saw this tree over at Waterford Beach the other day when my daughters and I went to look for sea glass. Today was beautiful outside- the most inspiring day for me. AND today was 'free-day' over at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT (close to where I live). So the three of us went over to see the exhibit "Impressionist Giverny: American Painters in France". Between that exhibit and the house museum where Miss Florence took in her artist boarders - and the gardens & river behind the house.....well it was a PERFECT day for me. They even had the folks from "Old Lyme Ice Cream" there giving out free samples of "Giverny Vanilla" ice cream - especially made up for the exhibit!! Pinch me! - am I dreaming?? What an incredible treat this was today!!! Click on the image to enlarge & see close up.
