Orchard Aerial Paintings & Tower Hill Botanic Garden Paintings

I have been recording video and photographs from my drone. Some of the images have led to paintings. I have been inspired by David Hockney’s paintings of the Yorkshire countryside.

With the pandemic raging and the cold weather, I have been painting at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, Massachusetts.

Apple Trees & an Orchard

I thought it would be interesting to do a series of paintings of the apple orchard near where we live. I started in the Spring of 2019 and have gotten to May 2019 so far. I plan to make more paintings of the orchard right on into October when all the leaves have fallen off the trees.
