"...FOREST FOR THE TREES" - 38x50 - mixed media
Mist rising off the lake this morning, meaning the air is cooler than the water and is a sure sign of change of seasons. Met my Thursday paint group at a remote, scenic lake, and the consensus was... everything's too green! Well, I bet not for long! Alabama football is on TV right now... another sure sign we're entering the best time of the year! Perfect for outdoor chores/projects/excuses to wander around and enjoy. Roll Tide!
So... of course, the art season also kicks in and all those preparations were supposed to be taken care of when it was too hot to go outside, right? I did... I delivered around and was relaxing when a call came to update all work in Atlanta... they just checked my website, viewed the new work I took to NOLA and they LOVE it... want some of that! Well... that's always good news but that means more time in the studio when I'd rather be digging in the dirt! The painting shown here was one they particularly liked... one of a number of tree paintings I explored this summer. I have no complaints!
