My apologies for this photo. I usually do better with these, but this one just would not photograph well for me. It was a lot clearer when I did not crop the photo, so there you have it. I believe the reflective quality of the paints I used along with the lighting I have to work with made this particular one a challenge.
This is what I finished this weekend, but I started a lot more. This painting I did for my husband, the tree lover. Basically, it shows the strength of the tree that grows from a bit of earth which just barely nourishes it. I really wanted to do something more whimsical thus the vine-like lines. Paintings where you can recognize an image is not normally my style, but my very left-brained husband really wanted something he could understand. Do you ever do work like this...something really out of yourself for someone else to better understand and enjoy? I would not do this for just anyone, but I kind of think a lot of this guy! :)
So I not only spent time in the studio, but I also did quite a bit of sketchbook playing and reading. It was a good weekend for me doing the things I love.
How about your weekend? Was it all you looked forward to it being?
