9×12 oil on hardboard. Plein Air. Ah Spring! I have been paintinf the blooming trees near the Rt 81 entrance to the 1000 Islands Bridge to Canada. They only habg around for a week or a little more and often a storm will blowthem away. Our plein air group went to Cape Vincent May 16th and since it is close to Lake Ontarion the blooms were a week after the aforemetioned and at their prime.
