Around the Bend 10"x20" $425


Haven't painted for about 2 whole weeks-a long time for me!  Went to San Antonio for a 10 day visit with my kids and grandkids, then off to Minnesota with my sisters to check out my sister Pat's new home.  So I get back and dieing to paint and the first one I try is just awful!!  It was of some Aspen trees.  All slim vertical tree trunks and lots of thin branches against snow--a drawing nightmare and why I chose that--just dumb!  So this is my second attempt-so much better-from a trip my sister Penny and I took last year driving from Albuquerque to Taos to visit my friend Mary Matthews.

Lovely. I love the bright oranges in the trees, and the purples in the clouds. And I really like the tree shadows.

I'm trying to learn to paint landscapes, and my current painting has purple in the clouds, but so far I haven't "got it". Yours is an inspiration.
