Two beginnings...and not one finish...:)
Today was my day to travel to the little city of Golden to paint with the group who calls themselves the "Painted Toe Society". I'm a substitute for the month of January. Their group has a limited number due to the size of the room they rent at the Foothills Art Gallery in Golden Colorado. Foothills hosts many shows throughout the year...some national...so I understand why they stay. Some member will be out of town, so I get to sub! YEA.
I didn't take my large aspen painting as I didn't know if there would be room, so I took a couple small supports and just began them. The little 4x4 (which will be a contest give-away choice) is just laid in...ready for some more sumpin sumpin...we shall see...
The tall skinny is a 12x4" wrapped canvas that will be another aspen trunk and some other sumpin...:) Most of the time I work from reference photos...but when I begin a piece with trees I allow myself to veer from reality as much as I'm in the mood for at the moment...so that is why I'm never sure just WHAT they will turn out like...I collaged a bit on top...and will finish these in the coming days...then we will all see what they look like finished! ha
Til we meet again..(probably tomorrow)....HAPPY PAINTING!!
