"A Shady Day"

"A Shady Day"
Oil on Wood Panel

I don't know what it is, but I just can't seem to do enough of these little forest images. I love to carve out the negative spaces between the branches... and like icing on a cake, adding the final wisps of delicate branch at the tippy tops of each naked tree. Almost reaching for something like open arms...

I like that one a lot!
I also like the fun way you've photographed it, catching part of the studio and your foot. Great for a blog.

I'm with you - painting the negative space is my favourite part. Love your blog!
