Standing in the Sunshine

Standing in the Sunshine
7 x 5


You may realize that one of the subject matters that I really like is stately trees. It must be the compelling abstract design of their shape against the relatively blank canvass of the sky that pulls me in. This painting was somewhat of a breakthrough for  me as I tried a technique that starts off with much larger and simpler shapes from which I chisel out the forms. I am very pleased with the results.
