Day 13 & 14 Transition



I barely squeezed in some time on Friday, but I had this idea in mind of doing trees from the perspective of looking up at them. I did the background in blue acrylic and painted in the trees with leaves. Not satisfied with it, I went and did a pen sketch of more trees...and went to bed.
Sat., I used some water colors, added some some leaves and detail, but not thrilled. I like to be thrilled.
I like looking up when I am surrounded by trees. They are so majestic. The one with the deep blue background feels like they are in a huddle giving each other a pep talk before winter sets in. They are both about Transition. I guess that is what I am grateful for, that things don't remain static, but always in a process of transition.
