Fall Dogwood Tree...... and A 20 Minute Painting Tree Tuesday !

Today for #treetuesday hosted by @old-guy-photos I decided to take a 5 X 7 canvas board and paint a tree in 20 minutes. Yes.... I know.... you can tell that's all that was put into it. LOL ! I told Alexa to do a 20 minute timer and she did. I was going to paint a fall tree with the leaves blowing off and no matter how it came out, the good, the bad or the ugly, I was going to post it.... .and here it is ! I kept giggling because I was rushing and when I asked Alexa how much time was left and she said "4 minutes".... I rushed even faster !

It was fun ! Now there are about 8 paint brushes that need washing, because I couldn't stop. I did drop them in water to keep them from drying though.

It's ok to laugh ! I did ! .....and I'm still kind of grinning because I actually posted it ! Even typing that made me laugh.

Now for the real tree. I have this sweet dogwood in my front yard. It is different in every season and I have posted different versions of it before. Now... here it is again !

It's chocked full of red berries.

....and one day when they are ripe, the birds will tell me, because for several days they'll swarm the tree and eat them all up.

I know.. .you've seen it all before and in better photos. ~ laughing ~

I added this for the fun of it. It still has the discs I hung on it in the spring. It has been fun seeing them twirl round and round, catching the sun in a sparkly kind of way.

Well.... there it is..... my Tacky Tree Tuesday post.

Hope you enjoyed a laugh with me.

Love you !

Thanks !

That was kind of fun to try to do a whole little painting in 20 minutes. I will probably see what else I can do in 20 minutes for some future posts.

That is a cool tree and a great idea!! It is like those 5 minute freewrites. Well you could do a weekly theme for a 20 minute painting/drawing/work of art!!!

The thought did cross my mind about doing more of them.

It's kind of funny... right ?

Well ! Thank you !

You know with the monitor light behind it, they always look a little brighter than in the real, but if you want it, when it dries I will seal it and send it to you. :)

I will send you Steem to help pay the postage! I would love it and then I can say I have a Jacey original! Email is Melinda.010100@gmail.com

You don't need to send steem ! Since it's 5 X 7.... it will barely cost anything. :) I would like to give it to you.

I'll send you an email in a minute so you will have mine.

If someone told me that he could draw a tree in 20 minutes, I would be in doubt.)) But now I know - it is possible.))
