Crab Apple Tree

Spring has arrived in southwestern Ohio.  Everything's blooming, including the crab apple trees.  They look elegant against the dark blue of a stormy sky.  (Because this is OH, there are regular thunderstorms that roll through.

I think the colors of this painting worked, but the shape is "meh."  I meant to have the tree much more towards the left side of the page, but got carried away when I was laying in the indigo blue.  I think I'll try again on a larger scale.  This painting is about 7.5x6 inches on a piece of scrap paper.
