Here we have today’s fall trees. This little landscape feels very happy to me, maybe it’s the googly eyed fire hydrant. There was a chain on the hydrant connecting the 2 white spouts that looked like a smile but I painted it out when I did some shading. I might need to put that back in. 😀🍁🍂🌿🍃🌲🌳🎄
Here’s today’s trees. This morning I went running along the Boise River greenbelt with some friends and the reflections of the trees in the river caught my attention. This is a first hit, I’ll put some more time into it to see where it goes. I’m way out in new territory with these trees and landscapes. The white/gray sky is a little too sad for me, so I’ll change that some.
This morning I was at the dog park and noticed how beautiful the trees were with the sun shining through from behind. I painted it this evening. I’ll go back when it’s dry and work out the light coming through a little more. See the garbage can? Very important for a dog park.
I’m going to start painting trees. And maybe trees and people together. I want to do one a day through the fall. I’ll sell any of them, please send me a message if interested.
This one is for sale. 5X7″ $90
My painting of my daughter collecting shells is nearly done. I’m still working out a few things. As I was painting her shirt yellow (at her request) I realized that the shirt was one of the first things I’ve painted yellow. I felt like I was really branching out.😉
I looked through my paintings to see if I’ve ever painted anything yellow. I found a yellow tree that I painted last fall.
When a figure starts to emerge it’s magic for me, every time. It goes from a ghost to a person.
