6"x6" | oil on archival 3/8" deep solid panel
I am working on a new series. Atmosphere! Creating more atmosphere in paintings. More to come...
This is painted on a 3/8" archival panel, ready for hanging with a keyhole for hanging drilled into the back of the panel. The slim sides are white. Modern and contemporary look.
You may also frame the painting is a traditional frame. It is not so thick that it couldn't fit in a frame.

#1152 Asymmetrical Oak Tree

6"x6" | oil on archival panel

I love asymmetrical oak trees. The ones that don't look like lollypops... And pink skies.
This is inspired by our recent painting sessions at the Cathedral Ridge Winery. I took some reference photos of the oak tree and the blue hills behind it.
