"Apple Blossoms and Garden Chairs" oil landscape painting

This painting was inspired by the view outside my window at the Knowles Studio. I had been watching the apple trees blossoming and wishing to paint them but every time I got the chance, it would cloud up and rain...or hail...or snow...or drizzle..or blow a gale....Sheesh!  What a spring we have had!...Any how, I finally turned my easel around and painted the garden chairs under the apple tree... that no longer had blossoms...... but I remembered them...I painted these same garden chairs last year, en plein air......when we had much nicer spring weather..
12x36 oil on canvas

Looks like a rainy day but with a wonderful cozy feel to it.
