"Morning Quake"

"Morning Quake" 30x24" acrylic and paper on stretched canvas.

I finally stayed still long enough to finish my latest aspen piece! "Morning Quake" took forever to NAME! I do so many aspen pieces that it gets tough sometimes so I took a moment to remember the day I took this reference photo and that helped. We were hiking one morning and the sun had just begun to shine on those beautiful leaves causing that "quaking" that is so often referred to when aspen leaves are blown about...the effect is beautiful as the light catches them.

I began with just paint, but quickly realized that even though it was 30x24" it needed the texture that I love so much when I add paper. The trunks are paper with acrylic as my main medium. For purchase information you can click over to my website.

Kate Cissell; our latest contest winner chose "Aspen 4x4" as her contest choice, so please note it is no longer available. As noted in earlier posts I will shortly be opening an ETSY or ETSY like shop and will be putting my small pieces there for sale so they will be offered in two ways...one for sale and one as a contest choice. This means I will be trying to do more of them to keep my stock in good supply!

HAPPY PAINTING to you all today!

Thank you Krista...this one was especially interesting for me with the purples and yellows all living in one place!

Love this aspen painting, Saundra. It has great texture and depth. I'm glad you stayed still long enough to finish it, you busy woman!

Saundra Lane Galloway said...

Thank you Elizabeth! Too busy for my own good! I wish I could show the texture like it is close up...ahhh well!

Morning Quake is so pretty, Saundra. It reminds me a bit of walking through some of Starved Rock trails here in IL, with the rocky walls behind the trees. Sigh...dreaming of mild autumn days.

Thank you Autumn Leaves...Sounds like I need to visit IL! I'm ready for WARM days again...:)
