Yesterday I mentioned how I use trees a lot in my work. I do love the tree image. I have a few new acrylic paintings I’d like to share with you that have trees in them.
The first one was painted for the May show at the Tumalo Art Co.gallery in Bend, Oregon. The theme of the show was to take one of three landscape photographs by Bruce Jackson and use that as a starting point to create a painting from.
I chose Bruce’s photo “Twilight Fire.”
My intention was to take the image of “Twilight Fire” and make an abstract painting from it.
Inspired by the magnificent color in Bruce’s photo, my painting evolved as if it had a life of it’s own. The color definitely took over! I don’t often paint landscapes and when I do they are usually from my imagination.
Bruce’s photo was a stepping stone for me to leap into the unknown of which “Kaleidoscope Mountain” came forth. It didn’t turn out as abstract as I had intended but I was happy with the results.
I painted it on a reclaimed wood panel so it has a warm, honey brown frame around it. Kaleidoscope Mountain is now showing through May at the Tumalo Art Co.
I’ve been painting more whimsical tree paintings and wanted to share two of them.
This is the finished framed piece of I Dreamed of a Stack of Moons.
This is the finished framed piece of Moonlight Magic.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the new paintings.
