“We fear to trust our wings. We plume and feather them, but dare not throw our weight upon them. We cling too often to the perch.“

Tree is the word this week at Illustration Friday.
I had a good time painting this one. Usually I paint the critters
first, then move to the background, but I did this one backwards, since
tree was the word of the week. I didn’t know what color the cows were
going to be until I dipped my brush in that pink.
I couldn’t find any biographical info on Mr. Newcomb, but I liked the quote.
