Crab Apple Tree

Post by VIN » Tue Apr 21, 2020 6:01 am

Nowhere near as impressive as Gwumpz' shots, but I thought I'd share it anyway.
From the kitchen window, I can see the top of a crab apple tree. When in bloom, this always reminded me of the Almond Blossom that Van Gogh painted after his nephew and namesake was born.

Thank, Tom ! :D It does capture a bit of the vibe from the painting.

Wow, not that isn't very beautiful, but makes me rather jealous - I'm still dealing with bare trees (thank you Danny Kirwan) and snow.
Can't wait to see some green leaves and blossoms.
When I was a kid my aunt took me to the Detroit Institute of Arts for a traveling Van Gogh exhibit - since then he's always been one of my faves
van Eyck has always been my #1 - love the detail in his work.

Funny that you mention that. When I was a kid my dad took me to a travelling Van Gogh exhibit as well and though I was still a kid without any clue of art I still remember that I was heavily impressed. (Same exhibit maybe since we're close in age?)

You're probably right Tom.
Do you do any art yourself? I'd ask VIN, but it's pretty obvious he does.

As a kid and in my teens I did a lot of drawing and painting, I just loved it. Studied at college for graphic design but then music got in the way... :lol:

WOW Tom :o - more than impressive.

My specialty was a Bic pen . . . I should try and drag out my old sketch pad, it's not like I'm going to the beach.
What with snow, cold weather and something else . . what was it now? Oh yeah STAY HOME.

If I find any of my old pics that are worthy (not likely) I'll post one.
