Night Aspen


"Night Aspen" is another 4x4" contest give-away choice. Of course it isn't really night...but the dark blue against the white made me think of night. This is a small version of the 24x12" piece done earlier. This little piece is on a fiberboard with dovetail slots for hanging on back, or has its own little easel. As I love to do so often I have mixed acrylic with collage papers. The trunks are from my "special" handmade aspen trunk paper. When we reach 75 followers I will draw from the list and give the winner a choice from the contest choices on my sidebar.

We are still in the middle of the black mold saga. With the offending area cleaned up, removed and sheet rock replaced I am still waiting for testing in other areas of our basement as well as a new toilet to be installed. It feels a little like I have leprosy even though it is in the house. Seems funny to attach that feeling to my person! What all this HAS done is open up the most extensive cleaning jag I've ever been on! We found a leak in the old toilet, so I know it wasn't my housecleaning to blame, but it feels so icky here I just have this need to have it ALL totally clean now...including painting and even looking for new dining room chairs as ours are old and dirty! HA...so...am I going crazy? Don't think so...just waiting on contractors who never show up has left me feeling a bit helpless to get the problem handled as quickly as I would like...so I guess I'm doing what I CAN do...:) Anyone out there relate??

Uck - I'm so sorry about the mold!
This is so pretty - aspens are my favorites.
I'm enjoying my daisies every day:)

You and Jane both have me wanting to wander under the trees and enjoy their soughing in the breezes. This is such a pretty piece, Saundra. I wonder if I'll ever turn out anything even half as pretty!

I truly love how you've combined collage work into this painting. Very well done. Love the aspens.
