I flatter myself...hmmm.
I have been reading other blogs, gaining insights, laughs and good ideas. (Hallie, you are my laugh place, you make my day and mood lighter) Just laying low, taking a time out, I guess. Reading. Resting in the winter quiet. It is comforting and soothing to nestle into the dark and cold winter nights with a good book or a movie. Popcorn, hot tea.
I have been working on a few paintings and have this one image to post, the others are in different stages of done or not done or going to the paint over pile.
This painting is derived from a photo I took this summer of a row of trees that intrique me. Every time I drive by, I look at them. Year round. I'm not sure what kind of trees they are; I think they're some type of poplar or willow. I took artistic license with how they really look and put my own spin on things. I was going for the light around and behind the trees, which is what grabs me whenever I see these trees.
With a nod and a thank you to Iona, who mentioned "Singing Trees" as a name for my last painting that I posted, I'm calling this "All Singing".
