I love jacaranda trees. Not only do they signify that it is truly summer, they’re also such a great tree: super color that looks different in every light, and a properly messy tree that spills it’s color all over the ground underneath it. I can paint it over and over in the short season in which it blooms. I painted one a couple of weeks ago.

Then I went back and painted it again:

These trees are outside my local library (which is still shut).

Looking back at my sketches, I also seem to really love boxy trucks and vans. Here is that tree from my neighborhood painted again a couple of days ago.

It is good to be out sketching on location, even if it is just a couple of blocks from my home or from my car. I have missed it so much!
