Tree and Bushes
10/25/2003 : 12"x16" : $175

This is up in my favorites along with Transmission Lines. Behind this layer of paint is a wash meant to be a windowsill and a potted plant, horizontally. I borrowed the lines of the windowsill in the colored stripes on the left, because I thought they were in a good spot. Then I filled in the purple "sky" in a rectangular spiral, then the green ground, and started playing around with making a tree. I really like painting trees, and I'm happy to possibly be getting better at them. I need to do more to see if this one was a fluke. Then, for balance, I dragged the skyline out over the lines of color, and added the three bushes. This needs good sunlight to really stand out, but with it... it does.

I am soooo fake pre-loading this image so the navigation doesn't skip while loading the over state.  I know I could use the sliding doors technique to avoid this fate, but I am too lazy.
