Trees Please

I can never stay away from painting trees for too long you know.
I've been craving spring and summer lately.
I miss green and pink.
I miss blossoms and warm grass.
I think these paintings really show my longing for some warmth.

The Original of this one is gone, but prints will be available.

Someone asked me if I painted willow trees, and I was surprised when I said no.
I love willow trees. 
Here is a fun story for you... When I was about ten, my parents decided to plant a young willow tree in our garden. I said, "I can't wait to climb it!" My dad said, "It won't be big enough for anyone to climb it until you are in your 20's, and by then, you won't want to climb trees." 
False. 
False statement father.
This painting is 11x14, and 8x10 prints will be available.
 It was done with gesso, paper, antique pages, stucco, tissue paper, acrylic paints and oil pastels.

And now.. I have to tell you.. 
I'm very excited about something.
I can't say what, just yet.. and I might not be able to for a long time.
But, I can hardly contain myself. 

I'm planning a project, and it will be huge. 
And good.
And I may need lots of help and support from you guys.
But, I can't say anything just yet..
except to Brad, and I think he's had just about enough of me.

  7. This is a lovely painting. Your work is still quite new to me. And let's just say I am getting an education that one doesn't always need to work with a paintbrush to create an image.
