Pyracantha Tree

I'm taking the day off for New Year's so there won't be a painting, but I wanted to share a shockingly beautiful tree in my back yard. It is dripping with spectacular berries for six months or more out of the year. They turn from bright orange to bright red and I love to bring the berry bunches into the house and put them into vases around Christmas time. The stems end up drying in the vases and they are just great for months. This is a large painting that I did about 4 or 5 years ago of the orange berries. It is hanging in my Father-in-Law's Kentucky home now. Maybe it's time to paint pyracantha berries again only this time vivid red. Happy New Year everyone.
