Winter waits.

Mixed Media on Canvas

I am enjoying exploring the structure of branches - remembering waking up inside the Redwood Forest this past Summer and seeing the understory that arched above our tent skylight.  These paintings were all intended as one part of a lager idea but I am finding that I want to rest with them just as they are for a bit - simple, quiet, spare.  I got a fortune the other night from a Chinese dinner that read:  "Stop searching. Happiness will come to you."  Sometimes painting is like that.
