I was having a fairly serious conversation on the phone while doing this painting. A terrible practice. Sketching is a fantastic reason to turn the phone off and enjoy God's creation. You miss a lot that's going on in the real world when you stay to plugged in. Anyway, as a result of my lack of focus I ended up with what I call "grandma tree's". It means you have tried to paint what you know instead of what you see. This is a perfect example. The real branches had much more poetry to them. But no matter how they turned out I got to experience the blessing of observing them.
