My most wonderful son who lives in San Diego is having a birthday in a couple weeks...and as is my tradition I do a painting for him. He LOVES my work...actually encourages my experimentation, so today I've begun a new piece in my signature style with PALM TREES as the subject this time. I'm very excited to do this piece as I too ADORE palm trees...they are such interesting subject matter!...and, they remind me of my son...This photo doesn't show the changes in value from top to bottom, but you can see a bit of sun as it peeks through.
I've made some palm leaf stamps that will be part of this piece...and will soon start adding papers to bring it some good interest...stay tuned! This has to be finished quickly so I can get it out to him!!
