"GOLDEN TOPS" COLORFUL CONTEMPORARY MIXED MEDIA ASPEN LANDSCAPE © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Golden Tops"
12" x 6" mixed media on 1 3/4" cradled panel stained English Oak to compliment
$165.00 includes shipping in the US




This is the completed piece that I posted it's beginning the other day. My inspiration on this one was two fold.  First, I have been intrigued by the very strong contrast of the dark purple/blue background against the whitish trunks.  Much like my piece "Aspen in Collage". (which is available also...just hop over to my website at www.saundralanegallowayfineart.com and go to landscapes)  Ever since I created Aspen in Collage I've wanted to do another high contrast piece.  I was also inspired for Golden Tops from all the walks in a lucky find of an aspen stand and standing looking up I get that exciting bugs eye view.  So, this is the end result from the two lights in my soul!  Got a little poetic didn't I? :)  Life is full of moments where we are caught by the beauty of something and it catches in our souls and comes back out through a happy memory, and like most of you out there we are inspired to put it out for others to see! 

I am having fun with a young fox as you've seen in recent posts.  She (and I believe it IS a she) has been coming by to visit every morning.  She stands at the back door and just watches me working in the kitchen, and if I go out back she will run back and forth...I'm almost convinced that IF I threw her a ball she would fetch...so, this is our little lady through the screen...THAT is inspiring!
HAPPY CREATING EVERYONE!  BE INSPIRED TODAY!

Thanks all! I'm working on a couple others in similar fashion...but the contrast is what does it for this one...:)

Ah Saundra...this little fox is so beautiful! Did you know there are breeders of tame foxes? In fact, I believe the place that does this is in your neck of the woods somewhere. At any rate, the tall aspens are delightful and I personally have taken that bugs eye view when painting a field of poppies.
