"Gore Range Layers"

will be available on my website after the show at the CORE!
FINALLY...I had time to finish this long skinny of the Gore Mountains here in Colorado!! As you can see I put in a few pines that lined the hill and my signature aspen along the bottom. It took me a few days of deliberating before I decided on how to treat the foliage of the aspen.
I decided to use the several colors that are often seen in aspen at certain times of year...did I exaggerate a bit...YEP...we can do that! For me...the images...the feelings that come from memories are important and that is what I went for.
The leaves are meant to be a part of the blending from one layer to another...and not to take away from the beauty that is the Gore Range above...a tricky feat to play with when one loves the trees as much as I do. I softened them a bit with stamping of aspen leaves that are merely a suggestion rather than an image. I don't know how much of our minds pick up on subtle images...or, as in this case...parts of images...but, just in case I DID use aspen stamps! FUN!
Now I'm thinking what will I do next!! HAPPY CREATING!!
