Up and away

I actually did another 6"x6" today but by the time I got home it was too dark to photograph it. So after months of needing a real break from painting small, it seems I'm able to enjoy it again. Maybe I was just a bit burned out.
Anyway, I decided to pull another one from the vault. This is a larger acrylic - 24"x30" - that I did a few years back. Sometimes you tuck things away and don't look at them for a while and then it's a pleasant surprise to make their acquaintance again. That's how I feel about this tree ; )

24"x30" That is huge compared to 6"x6". Do you remember? Did you use bigger brushes?
Nice painting, love this point of view.

I think it's refreshing to see older paintings which seems to give creedence to the artists struggle. And love yours Kim! I was in Santa Fe last week and saw another artists arial tree paintings. Fun!

I think it's lovely too! And yes, it is nice to come across old work and really like it when perhaps we were unsure at the time. There is such a lovely variety on your blog, I couldn't possibly bore! :0)
