Aspen Angle Completed

"Aspen Angle"
12x4"
stretched canvas
$95

"Aspen Angle" side view

"Aspen Angle" is finally completed to my satisfaction. This piece is 12x4" and created on stretched canvas that is 1" in depth and painted around as you can see. I always know I'm serious when I put it on my website...so for purchase info click on the title or name...

I decided to add a hint of aspen leaves in front of the tree and it felt good to say I'm finished with this one. I've learned (once again) my lesson about staying loose, so we shall see if I can approach it loosely from the beginning on the next one like this I approach!

The detail picture shows all the wonderful texture applied to this piece. I get goosebumps when I see texture coming out of me in some way whether it be through papers, paint build up, or my fun paper casts!! I'm even excited with implied texture...Yummm!
I'm tickled with my new followers...hope the journey makes you happy or inspires you in some way!!

I've ordered new canvas for my wax collage pieces, but have one more left to do my next one, so that is waiting in line...but FIRST I finish the small triptych I posted the beginnings of a few days ago, and I've been busting at the seams to paint some maple leaves on my maple paper cast! So, off I go to get to work!!

This is BEAUTIFUL Saundra! I love how you stretched yourself and painted on such a unique size canvas. It really works for this.

Oh Saundra!! This is so beautiful, truly. I like what you've done with this, love the colors, and that unusual canvas size is just exquisite! I think you and Jane are the two artists whose work I aim to buy when we receive our tax refund in the next couple of months or so. That is what I find exciting!! Woot!!

This turned out just right, Saundra. It's beautiful. I like seeing the side view.

Thanks Sheila. If we don't stretch we get stiff...right?? I accidentally ran across this size, so...trees...right?? :)

You are so supportive all the time Sherry...I thank you for that!! Refund?? Refund?? What are those?? I haven't had one since I was single...:) Glad you are getting one!! :)

Thank you Elizabeth! Coming from a fellow experimenter that means a lot!! The side view just helps out I think!

Hey Sis,

I've loved watching this painting develop - you have massive depth in the layers - it simply reveals the composition with such detail! And the contrasting colors are intense!

I hope you're teaching soon - the kids in Denver would be so blessed and learn so much (and that's not bias speaking, that's just truth!).

Love you...

DAVE :{)

This is amazing Saundra! You are an absolute whiz with these aspens and I love the shape of this one! All that lovely juicy texture!

Saundra Lane Galloway said...
