"Pine Shadows"

Click on painting to see detail

I want to thank all of you that sent me supportive thoughts during this little glitch in life I have been experiencing. You are all so important to me. It truly feels like a family of sorts as I have said before. I absolutely love being able to communicate with people from all over; sharing ideas, supporting one another and being of a similar mind through our love of art. Thank you for being there!

So, a few things today. I added a few darks and lights in this pine collage and now will put it in the finished area and move on. Thanks to those who suggested names. Doing SO many trees I sometimes can't see the forest for the trees when I am trying to name them. I finally settled on Pine Shadows for this 8x16 collage on canvas and added it to my website.
Yesterday was literally the first day I felt I could set my worries aside and do a small piece. This will go into our contest choices. You all were on my mind so much that I just wanted to do a little something that one of you could choose from. Plus, I think starting small was a good beginning to getting back to work! This is called "Snow Pines". It is one of my 4x4 collage pieces done on fiberboard with slots for hanging so it would work hanging or sitting on one of the little easels you can choose from.


These pics were taken the other evening as we watched the moon come out full and then the clouds begin to cover over the foothills across from our house. It wasn't but a few minutes before the clouds completely covered the foothills so they could not be seen at all. It should have been Halloween...looked mysterious and a little spooky...But, I wanted to share a different kind of beauty that God gives us everyday!

Thanks again from the bottom of my heart!! I'm still plugging along trying to weather this "glitch", but I feel happy that I am able to work now! Happy Painting to you all...and welcome to my newest followers!! You are ALL appreciated!

Saundra, the added touches to the first piece are exquisite. I so love that you have a love of trees, as I do. I am also glad to know you were able to shut off the worries, at least for a short while. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

The finished pine shadows is so beautifully done, I can smell the scent of pine in that painting! And the smaller collage painting is just as lovely. I'm so glad you are feeling more like painting for longer periods of time. I hope all is well and you and your family issues are perfect again soon (or as perfect as families can be).

I find painting a very healing experience. It helps forget one's troubles - if only temporarily. Glad to see you painting. I have been gone all summer but so glad to be back painting and connecting with fellow bloggers.
Keep well.
