"Aspen in Orange and Green" mixed acrylic/handmade paper © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Aspen in Orange and Green"
6" x 25"
MDF Panel with 1 3/4" poplar cradle 

To paint so many aspen (which I love to do) it gets harder and harder to find suitable names...so, often I default to descriptive titles...which is OK...Titles aren't really my thing, but we need them don't we! 

I love the long horizontal of this piece, and I love the colors that lie between...reminds me of late summer/autumn all rolled into one. FUN! It is cloudy this morning so this will go on my website when the sun comes out and I have a moment for a better pic...I think the detail pics show color more accurately!

Yesterday I had some people come up to purchase a table I had on Craig's List...that was nice; they were nice!  While they here they saw all the paintings I have all around the house and asked about them...they fell in love with my new pieces and were interested in purchasing a couple...SAD as I hadn't yet finished the sides and added the wire...so they weren't ready to go yet!  Although they took my card and said they would be back I missed a valuable opportunity...SO, this weekend and until I finish I will be taking the TIME to finish all the sides and put the wire on back and have them ready to go...It is frustrating to me that I must stop painting to take care of "business"...but, HELLO...I could have sold paintings if I'd had that done...SO...off I go...to FINISH!

HAPPY CREATING!!

This piece is looking good Saundra! Please do show a finished piece or two; especially if you use the gel stain for those unfinished sides (I still think it will look amazing)!

Yes, definitely your medium, and together with the aspens, wonderful. (Absolutely love the geraniums, btw)

(I'm picking up a lot of Americanisms - btw, lol - great fun!)
