Up in a Tree

TM9429 Up in a Tree 42×48 oil on panel

Often, a painting can provide a place of escape and refreshment. I was thinking about this while “social distancing” and thought about the wonders of hanging out with birds in a tree, especially in October. With this in mind, I started a new painting full of bright colors, blue skies, and a few cumulous clouds – ready for a few misplaced travelers? The details below give you an opportunity to use your imagination and move inside and around the tree. Have fun.

Technical painting notes: Most of this painting was done with soft rubber rollers, with some brushwork to define edges and add variety to the stems and branches
