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.
