It was FUN to wake up today and get to work on a painting. Today's pleasure was this 8x8" oil on gesso'd panel that is from a reference photo taken while visiting my wonderful son in San Diego a few months ago. As you KNOW, I absolutely LOVE trees of all kinds...I think, aspen first of all, but palm trees come in closely behind as I love the random strokes that can come from painting the leaves...I've done em in acrylic, and oil...I think collage needs to happen soon...ooops...I forgot, I've done one in collage...but I need to do more!! I usually try to paint odd numbers of things for composition sake, but the way these guys seem to intertwine it seemed ok to make a six pack of them! I have a toe and ocean pic I want to paint soon from that same trip...coming soon!
Even though this isn't dry I've put it up in my website, so for purchase info please click over if you wish...:)
I woke up to more SNOW today and was soooo bummed until I went out back to say hello to our bird friends and saw these delightful little bird tracks in the snow...and just HAD to share! Boy, if my "footprint" on this earth could just be so delicate and small!
