I'm having lots of fun with these tree paintings! I feel considerably freed up after painting those three abstracts and changing the colors on my palette. A change is as good as a rest they say! I'm very interested in bold colors and high value contrasts as well as loose paint handling right now. These daily paintings continually amaze me with how good they are for me....like my daily morning walk and my daily vitamin! I'm working hard right now getting 6-8 large works completed for an upcoming solo show, take a sneak peek here , and I believe small studies are paving the way for the themes and the approach for my next series of paintings. Enjoy!
