"Pine Top"

Pine Top


I was happy to have the where with all to do another little 4x4 fiberboard covered with canvas acrylic for our follower contest. This one I call Pine Top because that is what it is! I realize my days living in the mountains may be coming to a close in the next few months, so I feel a special need to find as many views I see every day to keep me cozy when I move away. I am loving this method of painting and then covering over a bit to give a more disheveled appearance....I accidentally found this when I reworked "Lone Pine" back in March.

Remember when we reach 100 followers I will choose again from all of you so you will be able to pick which little gem you want...

So, this morning I drove into town to visit my favorite Starbucks before grocery shopping and was lucky enough to get to see another type of Colorado color we see from time to time...This lone balloon was hovering near my Starbucks and for once I remembered to bring my camera! I would love to ride on one of these one day, but for today it was a thrill to just see one! Enjoy!!

Later today I'm heading off to my favorite art store, Meiningers for a free demo on acrylic painting. I have been asked by a local art guild to do a workshop on acrylic painting and a demo or two...so it always helps to see how others do it...as I look for fresh perspectives on this excellent medium. YIPEE!! Inspiration is right around the corner!!

Me being me, I find I want to decorate that tree top with lights, ornaments, and tinsel! I love it, as usual, Saundra. I am saddened to know you will be moving from your aerie. Please do take care to treat my...er...your tv cabinet with kid gloves. Such a fabulous piece! Enjoy your workshops, both the one you go to and the one you will teach! I've always wanted to go up in a balloon too! (Despite my abject terror of heights!)

Autumn Leaves, Ha...It's funny because that is ALWAYS the kind of tree we get! I call them Charlie Brown trees cuz they aren't really full...Don't be sad...we aren't going right away...and it will most probably be just down the mountain so I will still have access. My demo yesterday was fabulous...I learned a lot for my upcoming workshop which won't be til May...I have a fear of heights too...but a balloon...FUN!

As long as when you move you'll still be painting your wonderful trees Saundra. Just like this one.
