This is piece is called Meadow. (click to enlarge). I have a new painting space and a new routine and all the things that I need to get working on more paintings... but there is always a bit of a hump to clear in opening the lines of creativity. This piece was practice with a new brush technique and somewhere within the brush technique work - Dan was very encouraging and that made me think of my little family and how they have all been very supportive of me getting my painting hat back on. The three trees represent them. The dry brushing in this pieces is done with a paint brush that is 10 years old and special to me because I worked on several memorial pieces with it. I feel like this painting was done with a 'lotta help from my friends'.
