Crescent Moon Cottonwood

"Crescent Moon Cottonwood" 12x9, pastel - contact Michael

We are deep into spring here in Sedona. The cottonwoods are just beginning to bud out. When I painted this one - one of my favorites over at Crescent Moon - the buds hadn't quite started yet. You can see the spring color in the grass, though!

Later this week, I'm hoping to get up to Slide Rock. There are apple trees there. I wonder if they are blooming yet?

I go for color. The pinks and greens in this are wonderful. I'm ready for green, too, our high yesterday was 41 degrees. Not normal for central Texas.

Lovely piece! Our cottonwoods are still patiently waiting out the snow.

Wonderful tree shape! Makes me wish spring would arrive sooner here in NJ.
