I had more time to paint today and I wanted to do something larger for a change. I've been planing to paint this scene for a couple of months, but kept putting it off because I hadn't decided how I wanted to handle the tree trunks. They are big and dark, I didn't want them to be boring, but I also didn't want them to be too interesting. I'd been sitting looking at our one remaining pine tree (after Katrina took out the other six) and I began to "see it". Wow, I love when that happens. Even better is when I can actually paint it the way I've seen it.
