The Shapes of Trees

12" x 48" ::  cradled wood panel 2" deep
The shapes of trees fascinate me. I have had this idea in mind for a painting, since this summer, to paint on wood, and have the wood show through as part of the light values in the painting. It's hard to see in a photo, but the light color of the actual wood is showing through in parts of the painting. The wood has two coats of shellac as a clear gesso.

This painting is available at the Columbia Center for the Arts, 215 Cascade Ave, Hood River, OR  541 387 8877

The First Friday Opening Reception is this evening from 6pm - 8pm, hope to see you there!

Some progress photos... beginning to end...
