"Spring Day" landscape, oil painting

I have spent a wonderful week getting reacquainted with my fiance, Ann, who has just returned from an eighteen month commitment to serve as a nurse, helping in the clinic at New Hope Kassana in Uganda. I am very thankful to have her home and look forward to serving as a couple in the work that God will lead us in the future, beginning with a week in July, as nurse and cabin counselor at camp "High Rock", a summer camp for kids from the Yakima Tribe in White Swan, in association with Harrah community church and Sacred Road Ministries.

In between I will be trying to keep up with my painting!.......I couldn't resist the sunlight illuminating this flowering plum tree on Lemolo Shore Dr.

I can feel the warmth of the bright sunshine. Very loose, sure brushstrokes. Great piece.

Hey Bro . . .it's time I surfaced again. You gotta be basking in smiles right now with Ann back at home.

But I need to ask you . . .when, exactly was it that you became so darned good at painting. Somewhere in there, A huge shift happened. Grrrreat stuff!!
