While taking a break from painting ornaments, another tree painting was calling me. Whatever it is that has me so obsessed with trees lately, doesn't seem to be fading. At least not yet.
I had some 8x10 canvases and started painting an aqua blue/green background. Within a few hours, I'd produced this:
I suppose it really doesn't need a quote at all. The piece is strong enough to stand on its own without anything else added to it. The good news is that with one click of the mouse I can simply remove the quote all together.
I am noticing a problem that's starting to occur. I don't want to seem to let go of these paintings. It is an attachment, yes. But there's more going on than that: with every painting I finish, I develop this tiny sense of panic that I'll never be able to reproduce anything of this quality again. I'm not sure where this is coming from, but there you have it. I'm sure I'll sort through it.
By the way - to Kyra, Roz, Beth, Lynn and Teresa....thank you for your comments here. I haven't figure out how to reply to them yet, but am working on it ;)
