After picking out this quote,
I went online to look for reference.

Vincent Van Gogh's painting, "Mulberry Tree",
got me excited and energized.

Mulberry Tree - Vincent Van Gogh

To me, his tree really looked like it was whizzing.

So today, I thought I'd try an interpretation.
I felt like Vincent was standing over my shoulder
the whole time I was painting this.

Thanks for your feedback. It is most appreciated.

  1. The blue in this painting is absolutely electric! Caught my eye immediately!

  2. I love that you are doing this series - I've looked at about half and will come back later for a longer peek. Robin Larkspur sent me over from her blog. Trees have always felt like protectors to me. I love to have them on my property standing "guard" and then seeing them, as they should be, out in the open, in all their glory. Your painting is glorious. Ann
