One of the rare times I get to paint a fruit tree in full bloom.  The flowers only last a few days and then they blow off.

Hammock State Park is located about an hour east of the gulf cost.  Its seclusion makes it a great place to see a habitat that is a true reflection of what Florida was like before the 1600’s.  The live Oak with Spanish moss is a contrast as I sketched it in the middle of the cattle and orange fields that dominate much of the interior of the state.  The park has nice hiking trails and a board walk to experience the Cypress in the swamps.  The roads have a dedicated bike and walking paths and there is a museum dedicated to the Civilian Corps that created all these great parks across the US.

Here’s an animation that I’m did based on the Cedar tree on our association beach near Jackson’s Point on Lake Simcoe…

Oaks may be the king of the forest, but their leaves just seem to turn brown.  They do seem to last the longest, but brown is not as exciting as red, yellow or even purple maples.

Cedar on Briars Beach, Lake Simcoe

This is the same cedar I painted back in the winter though the shape and colors are a bit different.  Since the early fall allows me to paint on location for a longer period I can get a better representation of the tree, though I tend to like some of the liberties you take when you have to go inside and finish the painting.  The one thing that did change is the orange on the tree are the seedlings that are produced this time of year.  This is why I love revisiting subject matter in nature as it does change from day to day and season to season.
