October 14 - Hairy Sycamore
"Hairy Sycamore" Got an earlier start on painting today, still sorting out boxes in the studio, and the title of this one just came after I finished the hen-scratches of the branches. Doesnt' this tree look like it's having a bad hair day? Sometimes you just gotta laugh at yourself!
However, I do like this one because the colors are passionate and vibrant--not like the subtle ones from yesterday! There's drama in the contrast of values, creating more energy. I swiped the lighting from the sunset we had tonight, where the layer of clouds and the curve of the Earth create this thin layer of intense sunlight as evening approaches. Original oil, 12 x 9 inches $250
