Visitors to The Coastal Maine Botanical Garden in Boothbay are treated to a variety of interesting specimens. I found these weeping pines to be almost Disney-esque. I've discovered that when something catches my attention, I should paint it, no matter its probability as a saleable subject. I paint better when I like the subject, and sometimes that includes the unusual. Look around and see what first attracts your eye.
Also, be sure to break up the monotony of greens by sneaking in a bit of the complementary color red---in this case, pink---into the scene, whether it's really there or not.
