White Flowering Spring Tree Under the Moon

"White Moon Tree"
ACEO 2.5"x3.5"
Acrylic on linen panel
SOLD to a collector in the U.K.

I saw some lovely white flowering trees the other night. I've seen them every spring, but I don't believe I've ever seen them at night under the moon. I knew immediately that I wanted to paint them, so I took some photos. I most always have my camera with me for just such a moment! Here is one of my photos. The photo was taken in a parking lot and there was no grass as the area around the trees had been mulched. The moon was off to the left outside of the photo.

In my painting, I put the white spring flowering tree on bright green grass set against a black star-filled sky and illuminated by the moon.
