The Tree - SOLD
8" x 10" oil on canvas panel, painted en plein air, alla prima, on May 19th - SOLD, thank you Janice! - I've painted this old oak tree several times, but this particular day was a playfully magic time. The tree seemed to paint itself and I love the 'cartoony' quality. Originally I had thought to use this as an underpainting and return to the site to 'finish' the work. But each time I pick up the painting, it seems complete in its own special way.
