"Oak Tree -- the Horse Camp" and "Pair of Oak Trees at the Horse Camp" -- oil on birch panel -- 9x12" These two were painted en plein air several weeks ago at a horse staging area just outside Kensington Metropark, just west of Detroit. It was one of the last sunny, relatively warm days here in southeast Michigan. I'm quite a fan of oak trees, so I ended up doing 2 views of them that morning. I came back the next day, wanting to do a third view, but the place was full of horse trailers. I ended up doing a larger painting of a clump of white pines (see the post for November 20).
