This is a pastel painting of a tree in my back yard. I should say, my new back yard.
I am really enjoying the changing scenery right now. You know what I like best? There’s so much space. I guess I didn’t realize how closed in I felt walking in the woods until I had a place to walk that’s a mix of wide open spaces and clusters of trees. I could wander around here all day. The dogs sure wouldn’t mind it.
It’s so beautiful that it’s really hard to make myself go in to my studio in the mornings. But go I must because that’s where all my pastels are!
And of course the biggest reason to go is I get to paint stuff like this! So, yes, it’s a compromise, but it’s worth it.
Man. I can’t wait to see how everything changes once the snow comes…
