I know I should be working on my canvas, and I plan to tomorrow. Really! However, today I worked on this piece that has been sitting on my easel for an awfully long time. It started out as a work on aluminum foil that didn’t work. Then I painted over it with black and called it Midnight Bloom. Still, it didn’t seem right. Eventually I applied white gesso over the surface. Right around that time I also took pictures of the snow-covered trees outside my window. I realized that the pictures rather resembled my piece. So, after a full year (I told you it had been sitting for quite a while!) I sketched on trees in roughly the pattern that they appeared in my picture. Then I put a wash of acrylic onto them. It’s just a start but I am happy with the results already. Now I have two pieces to work on which I think is better. When one is drying I can move to the other.
