The horizon line and red buds

The horizon line is a tyrant that demands you find a way to manage its particular demands. How do you bridge the two completely different and unrelated elements (sky and land) in the landscape? How to deal with " the line?" Each situation is different and requires a new way of adapting.
I have been painting by the red buds since their arrival this spring. The silvery beauty of the naked trees contrast to the golden greens of the bud leaves...and then you add the pow! of the red buds and wowza!!!! Fun! I just can't stop.

I really like how you balanced the colors of the red buds with other equally intense colors so there is harmony. I hope you have a great plein air season, Loriann.
