Was a little concerned I wasn’t going to make today’s tree challenge.
This oil pastel is of a Crepe Myrtle (6×8) on Mi-Teintes cream tinted pastel paper. I just love these trees – they are plentiful in the US both Southern and Western States. They are used as ornamental trees and you’ll find them all over the place. Their flowerets make them a natural draw and really compliment landscapes. There are about 120 varieties that come in many different colors. My favorite ornamental tree, I love their beauty.
We have three in our yard, this painting represents one that we trimmed up last weekend – the flowers are this color. Hope you enjoy a little Texas summertime treasure.
