Wind blows cold, alone
they stand, branches reach as if
they are holding hands.
We made it! High fives all around! Yes, that means everyone who took Leslie’s challenge, even if you did not post everyday, or produce a full 30 paintings. Effort counts!
My painting today is another save. Actually I think I started three different times on this canvas. It has been sitting for months in between.
There is a grungy black, mucky mix as the base. I had too much turquoise from a piece I was working on the other day. Can’t waste paint. So I spread it on the canvas with a palette knife. I let it dry a bit, and then made scratch marks. I just now am realizing, I maybe should delineate the trunks that are overlapping.
I started the trunks by dripping paint, for a random placement. Then went back with a brush to add width to them. The branches and trunks wrap around the sides and top.
Tomorrow all the participants will post a collage of their work. Today, I would like to share the collections I have from this month. There are also some odds and ends, I’ll show those tomorrow in the collage.
Two more floral pieces have been started, to complete Fantasia. And I have finished pieces for the last three collections, Feme, bloom and friends. I will share those with you soon.
