56. Crepe Myrtle – First Leaves

Back to work with a messed up wrist . . . wasn’t bad.  After work, the sun was still out.  In our yard, we have a beautiful vase-shaped crepe myrtle tree.  It is sending out the first leaves of the season.  I sketched this at sunset, trying to catch the complex interweaving of the branches and the delicate greens of the baby leaves at the tips of the smallest branches.
