summer maple

I love this particular tree on our farm because it stands so bravely on a hill. Other trees are sheltered on low places or in groups. I have painted this maple tree before (Maple Hill) in autumn colors; this image is from last summer, with the sunshine backlighting the tree, the far grass lit up by strong sunlight, the shadow cast by the tree changing the color of the same grass to cool blue-greens and a touch of violet.
