Job well done!

I originally created this image for the online holiday greeting art.

Recently I have created the physical version that is printed the image onto a watercolor paper with ink jet ink and finished it with metal leaf, watercolor, and colored pencils as I normally do for my regular artwork.

The second image is the direct scan from this physical piece.

The image below is the close up image of the physical piece.

Here is an earlier painting in the Forest Series, "Kurosawa's Forest (16" x 28") and a second one called "Monsoon" (about 28' x 36" I think). These paintings were done in transparent acrylic glazes worked in many layers, with some incising into acrylic medium which makes the surface shimmer and catch the light different from different angles.

The next two images are of a new painting
still in progress (the second image is a detail) that I am working on. This one is much larger, about 30" high by 60" wide. I am working in acrylic on unstretched linen, and I am not glazing, but instead I am scumbling so that I can build layers of opaque color. I am uncertain yet of how I will finish this painting -- struggling with how much detail to add. I want it to suggest rythmnic patterns of the tree trunks but I do not want it to be to realistic . . . I think.
