How about a little tree?

This is the last one with the wood icing texture on the background with the Chevron stencil. I have several more of these little panels so maybe I will put another stencil texture next time. This tree was nice to paint. I think I do better when I imagine it in my mind a paint it. I am having extreme trouble with still lifes. Maybe I just shouldn't torture myself with them. I have never been one to let something defeat me though!

PS. These last several paintings I have posted are not still lifes.  A still life to me is something I have set up or I am plein air painting from real life. That's what is difficult for me. The flowers, apple and tree are all from my imagination.  I much prefer to just make it up---like this tree!

These paintings are wonderful Martha. The stencil and the wood icing really do add to the texture. You always do so well with texture anyways. The tree is my favorite out of the flowers and the apple, I love the outdoors.

Martha,

I love your textured art and don't understand your comment about having trouble with still lifes.

I really enjoyed your Pear-ology class and am still painting pears. Now to incorporate some textures into my paintings.

Very Nice! The wood icing goes on first? I would not be able to paint over that!

Trying to wrap my head around your "still Life" conclusion. Martha, I think you just need new glasses! ARE YOU KIDDING? Let's start with the pears...WHICH YOU TEACH, and move on to the AWESOME flower arrangements you have been showing lately. Maybe it's the oil you struggle with, or the wood icing...but the composition, values etc of the still life...get serious! With love...Gutsy

Looks like a place I would love to sit and laze about for a few hours with book and a pillow. Mmmmm.

I LOVE this tree. Want to sell it? Is this your next class? I'll sign up right away. For some reason my Pearology videos won't load so I haven't painted for a week. We're working on it though.
