This painting seemed like the perfect post for Halloween. Part of a series of dark tree imagery I created this year. I intended to paint some huge versions but the pandemic, fires and general apocalyptic vibe of the year dulled my enthusiasm… at least for now.
Final capture of this piece I sold last week. Now I just need to sign it, varnish and frame the painting! I always postpone those final details… reluctant to commit to the permanence I suppose.
Aspen are such beautiful trees. Happy to have a few out my studio window.
Finalizing my last painting for “The Woodland” exhibit. One of my favorite pieces in a solid collection. The show will open in May at Higher Art Gallery in Traverse City, MI.
The leaves are yet to open on the Aspen trees. Remembering the Fall when they left in a golden blaze.
Three in the series thus far. I definitely will come back to this idea and do some larger imagery. So many things I want to do!
A final capture of this painting, it will be part of “The Woodland” show. The tree adjacent to the tree in this painting blew over in a recent windstorm… towers fall.
Just a little springtime fantasy painting.
