BUy This Painting!

I kept my landscape painting close to home tonight.  I took my pochade box out to the backyard.  The neighbors have a great clump of birch trees.  Perfect for one last plein air painting though I had to paint fast to capture the evening light before it changed as the sun went down.

After finishing up with the birch trees outside, I brought my painting in.  Walking through the living room, I couldn’t help but notice a similarity to a small watercolor painted by my grandmother.
