The Side Yard by Cathy Mabius

The Side Yard, acrylic, 11 x 14

By kind invitation by a neighbor of one of our members, I painted this little gem of a scene.  In fact, it was the first thing I saw as I pulled up to the curb.  Despite all the wonderful little spaces farther around back, I loved the light on the azaleas and red maple.  I did, however, delete out the house of the kind neighbor which stood just behind the azaleas and to the right of the tree !

Such wonderful color and light--both were brilliant that morning.

I agree with Claire. As I was scrolling down the blog page the color in these really caught my eye.
