Ficus on a Cloudy Morning
This is an oil painting on hardwood, approximately 20"x24".
Yesterday morning, after going to Gelson's to pick up some bagels and lox (because if you give a dad some garlic-scallion cream cheese, he's gonna want the lox and bagels), we went farther east on Green, close to Hill, to an area with larger, undecorated ficus trees. I painted this from one of the photos I took yesterday morning of the trees. (The garlic-scallion cream cheese is my own version of the addictive, Pinnacle Bagel cream cheese. Pinnacle Bagel is in Greenwich Village, so not available for our morning walk.)
In my own version of rule-following, I'm not posting this with the tree sketches from life (see June 20 post) because I used a photograph.
