I painted the background last weekend and took out my palette knife and some impasto and just had a blast! These trees are in my nephew, Dr. Michael McNally's, back yard in Greenville, North Carolina. I had admired how Suzy had painted her aspens and Kay did her colorful trees so I attempted this almost completely with my palette knife. Similar but very different from both of theirs. Great afternoon of painting.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. Have a great Labor Day weekend!
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
