    Description

    In need of a break after  a series of rather somber paintings, I approached this  painting with no preconceptions other than to convey the buoyant mood I was in.  Using “happy” acrylic colors, I let the painting take control.  It almost painted itself. I think I succeeded in creating a joyful rhythm of colors, textures, shapes, and intensities that capture the viewer’s attention.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
