On Golden Pond .... not really!

This was from March's Different Strokes project ... my version of the fallen trees on the sandy beach

It's on canvas, 16x12" ... naples yellow figures strongly!

Yes, Indeed...that yellow is strong and it works well. A very atmospheric piece, Maureen.

Hey! Thanks Gang

I think I might just varnish this then - it might even hang on a wall!

Eternal

Dear Maureen,

Your painting reflects an eternal sunrise for a fallen tree.
A tree that was misunderstood and broken.
A tree that didn't surrender.
A tree that still dares to ask the ocean for a second opinion.

Re: On Golden Pond .... not really!

Your rendition is truly unique and wonderfully painted. When we discussed "wild color" I NEVER would have guessed this take on the subject...excellent.
