New leaves art

As I mentioned in Sunday's post, I'll be selling my original watercolors at half price this week in hopes of finding every painting a good home (and of clearing up that space behind my desk).  Today's theme is New Leaves.  If you buy one or more of the paintings below, they'll go in the mail early next week and will probably take roughly another week to arrive.

A young redbud pod is just beginning to plump up in front of the still-tender leaves.  I painted this when I was first getting to know Mark, so it's a bit melodramatic for reasons you'll understand if you've read Growing into a Farm.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's art, with an invertebrate theme.
