Haha - I'm not so sure about this one...! :)
But first, -- I've posted three paintings a week for three weeks now! Yay!
If I remember correctly, at least six of them were done in the course of one day.
Ok, about this one - it may not be exactly what I was shooting for, but this is my first attempt at painting architecture with a black ground as my starting place. And, it was so much fun! It's really kind of magical how the colors just 'pop' out of the darkness. And that tree (elm, I think), - well, it was just so crazy and mossy and all over the place, I just had to give it a try. I think the lower, simpler, portion of the painting balances out the crazy a bit.
At least I hope it does. :)
I took this photo in north Portland earlier this week.
It was cold, green and SUNNY.
Have a great weekend!
