Morning Tree




This morning was a bit cloudy up on the mountain, but I wanted to paint one of the trees that I see from my front deck. I'm still playing around with loosening up, so was more concerned with blocks of color. I'm not sure where it will take me, but I feel like I must try. I read a lot of articles about style, and I had developed some sort of style, but it changes with the medium I've noticed. My collages of trees have sharper edges. This 8x8 acrylic worked out for what it was, but I don't know if I'm doing myself any favors by experimenting...I've spoken to several artists who are in the same boat, and we are artists, so perhaps experimentation is merely following our own creative muse...time will tell...

Oh experimenting is great - sometimes we all get caught up on doing the same thing over and over and it's kind of nice to break away now and then and try something a little differently. The tree is wonderful!
Happy Painting,
Judy

This tree is beautiful and I can almost smell the fresh air! And, for what it is worth, I think experimentation is great.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
