30" x 24" - acrylic on canvas - $450
I completed this painting a week ago and am really happy with it. My sister said it 'made her smile'. I love the sense of rhythm and energy in the shape of the tree branches, brush strokes, and of course the bright, intense colours. It makes me smile too. The composition was inspired by a group of pine trees on a small rocky island near my cottage, on a lake in northern Ontario - a subject I have painted several times and interpreted differently each time (see this and this). Below is an acrylic study I did on paper first, followed by some of the progressive stages on canvas. Thanks for looking!
