We had a couple inches of snow yesterday, the first storm that actually has been sticking this season, some of that was still clinging to the tree branches. I took a little detour to the upper soccer fields and sketched this tree;
Some of you who follow this blog may recognize this tree. I've done both a field pastel sketch and an oil painting of this tree neither of which really satisfied me, I think maybe this quick little pencil sketch captures it's character a little better. Visiting this tree was a bit like visiting an old friend.
I took my camera as well of course, here is one of the photos I snapped. Maybe I'll eventually develop a Murray Park series of paintings.
