Orchard In Bloom

Last week the apple blossoms were beginning to pop open. This orchard is less than a mile north of us. Rain was predicted for the next few days. The blossoms only last a short while, so I felt compelled to paint. Yellow dandelions seemed to compete with the pink blossoms for color. The blossoms became fuller even as I painted. I like the way it came together, but lightened the shadows somewhat back in the studio.
