    Button bushes are a favorite subject for me. Lake Barkley in the Land Between the Lakes (KY) recreational area fishing is big tourist business. Button bushes live on the lake shore and in the Spring the Crappie fish deposit their eggs at their roots, bees and butterflies depend on their nectar and roots prevent shore erosion.  Lake residents often do not appreciate this bush and destroy them. I'm trying to boost the appreciation of this little known shrub.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
