Trees in CA Sunlight: almost done! / by debbie rich

My first canvas painting of "Sunlight in CA Trees" is almost finished. I want to add more green grass to the right side, and darken the the light branches of the front two trees. Here's how it looked in June.

I have started to add found objects to my artwork, mostly as framing elements, all natural plant pieces from my lovely botanical garden. This is a simple frame of tree branches.
