A Burst of Energy...
...A Weekend Spent In The Studio

It's been good to get back into the studio and do some painting.  I had big plans for last weekend, but they got cancelled late in the week.  No matter though, I had a burst of creativity energy and was happy to spend most of the weekend in my studio.

I am still somewhat obsessed with the tree I posted earlier and worked on another version of it, though this time I changed the proportions to accommodate the panel.

I worked on number of other pieces this weekend including finishing an Iris painting that I started last year, and a painting I've been wanting to do for a long time, a 'helicopter' from a maple tree. I love the feather-like structure of these seed pods. 

The finished works are posted here. If you would like to see some of the steps that went into making them, visit my Facebook page album More Works in Progress. Be sure to 'Like' the page if you would like to receive regular updates on my work.

This week, while out and about, I found a couple of more trees that intrigued me, including a beautiful grouping of three trees.

Thanks to the early sunrise, I have four paintings started. I am waiting for them to dry so I can start the glazing, but this can take 12 - 24 hours. Fortunately, this weekend my plans will keep me busy while I wait!
