Hey Friends,  It has been a great day here in the steam bowl of SW Virginia, also known as the Roanoke-Salem area.  The photo above was taken when my paint group, DLP, was at the Peaks of Otter on the Blue Ridge Parkway last month.  I started 3 paintings that morning.  I finally finished one today.

And I had my wits about me and took the camera out to the studio for progress shots
I even made a tiny, 30 second video, at the bottom of this post.

This is a sycamore tree that may be in it's final stages of life.  Slowly, limb by limb, they die.

Almost finished here, about another hour will do it..  This is on a gesso'd panel.  My favorite surface.
I do love the "YES" canvas but the gesso'd masonite is the best.

And here is the little video, I do hope it works.  I have one of my favorite CD's play in the background.  That would be, Beaux Jacque and the Hi-Rollers.  A zydeco band from Louisiana.
It's hard to paint while they are playing.  All she wants to do is dance!

I will post my others in a day or so.  I may hate them in the morning.
Thanks for your visit.

Happy Trails
