6 x 4", acrylic on canvas
I just realized I hadn't posted this painting yet.
Occasionally I like to take part in the monthly challenges on about.com (Some of them here.) The challenge in June was to make a painting from an unexpected angle. That idea was right up my alley, however I couldn't decide what I wanted to paint. Then one drizzly afternoon, I stood waiting for my husband and sons under a huge gnarly ancient tree. As I stood near the trunk, I looked up at the sky and realized just how interesting the old tree was from that perspective. Hence, "Looking Up". I think I could paint this tree 1,000 times and come up with a very different painting each time......
