A tabebuia tree bursting forth in brilliant yellow blooms is a sight to behold in the spring. I used thick impasto paint so the tree seems to bloom right off of the painting. As the tree blooms, petals fall, creating a carpet of yellow underneath. The twisting trunk swings to the right to balance the uphill movement to the left. A Florida springtime delight!
