To paint aspen for me is a joy! I spend so much time in and around the aspen tree, I feel like they are family! This painting was from a need to feel the spring time at the tips of my fingers! I love the soft colors that bring spring, and that is what this painting is about. You will see bits of paper peeking through, and a mark or so here and there from charcoal to define a bit of the abstract feel of the leaves. I usually paint the subject matter in oil, so the top of it all will be oil. This 18"x18" cradled painting comes ready to hang.
The sides are stained with a grey stain to compliment and unify what you see in the trees themselves. This gives the painting a completed, contemporary look.
here in this detail shot you can see the paper peeking through and some of the fun stamping that makes for interest.

KEEP LOOKING FOR THAT INSPIRATION!
