I really dreamed this painting, thus the name. I have been curious about my aspen I do lately, wanting to play with them in oil. I started this painting in acrylic with a basic background color and then, as I do, added paper before laying them in in oil. You can see the texture I've applied in oil off to the left as well. I'm in love with texture and pattern, and how it contrasts with a bit or realism. There is a good amount of "turquoisy" color along with several blues and creams.

We have had; like much of the country; lots of rainy and dark days, so photographing paintings lately has been a challenge! I think I need to invest in lighting for indoor pics...SO, I'm trying to find a way to describe color of the background; sort of bluish/green...more on the bluish side...
detail of texture in the background...FUN!
I haven't decided on a finish for the side yet...don't know if I want to paint it or stain it...FUN to think about it!
I'll put it in my website when I do the sides...until then, here she is!
