Summer Landscapes

Years ago I did a few small paintings of 
some unusual trees that line a beautiful golf course on Cape Cod.
Here's one that I kept in one of my rustic frames.  

When I was back there recently, I thought about doing a series of larger ones.

I haven't done many landscapes lately so this was fun. 
So much green! 
I wanted to keep it loose and somewhat abstract. 
Note: Doing this and reading Landscape Painting by Mitchell Albala 
is making me realize how much I miss plein air painting! 
My bike has two new tires and my gear is packed. 
No more excuses.
