I was feeling a little uninspired this morning when I went online. That's when I found out about Leslie Saeta's thirty paintings in thirty days challenge. It's par for the course that I'm late to the party, but it only started yesterday, so I'm giving it a shot along with over two hundred other participants. I did two paintings today to catch up. My theme for the series is paintings that are inspired by inspirational quotes. I'm starting off the first week painting trees. Wish me luck!
"There are rich counsels in the trees." ~ Herbert P. Horne

"I hear the wind among the trees
Playing the celestial symphonies;
I see the branches downward bent,
Like keys of some great instrument."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
