Aspens and Lilacs

12” X 16” Oil Painting on Canvas done in Plein Air

The path into the woods is a mystery and can lead your heart to adventure or just peace and tranquility. The lilacs and chokecherries are in blossom and as you walk by, your clothes brush them and send out a stupendous fragrance of spring time in the mountains. Now, lilacs are not native with the aspens. This painting was done near an early pioneer settlement in Utah, and the lilacs must have been planted by someone long ago.
