Painting in progress
Oil on canvas
Notes From My Tree Painting Journal
The above painting is a champion Cottonwood tree in Texas. My project for the year is to do a series of champion and heritage trees of the south paintings. This is a project I'm excited and challenged to do. I plan to paint champions from Florida, Georgia, the Carolina's, Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.
This will allow me to stretch my skill building study and to honor these great trees. I will enjoy researching their stories and histories. It might make a nice book. who knows? This should keep me busy, along with my Artist and Residence Project. 2014 is going to be a great year for painting trees.
