I painted this after going through my sketches from last summer. The early burst of heat this spring warmed the soil snd you could get the scent of summer on it's way. It reminded me of those hot hazy summer days were the afternoons fill with warmth and turn stormy. I painted this tree like many from memory as it has been an old friend for a while now. The dark sky after the storm had passed lit the tree and fields up like a jewel after the rain had washed the dust and dryness away.
