This painting is a submission for the Virtual Paint Out blog. The area of concentration this month is Bhutan. Here is the Google street view link.

One might not know that the reference for this painting was taken from something real. I really wanted to pull away from trying to make it look true to life.

Aspen trees!  One of my favorite subjects.  Although this is a pretty large painting it felt small compared the one I finished last week (“Entanglements.“)  This one would fit into my car.

There are some beautiful trees where I enjoy walking in MacDonald Forest at the end of Oak Creek Drive.  I have taken some photographs of them.  They are huge!

This is the largest painting I have ever finished.  We hung it in the living room so that I could photograph it on the wall and it made the 4′ x 3′ painting that had been hanging there look very small indeed.

It is raining and quite dark today so I had to turn on every light I could which made the light look a warm yellow.

I had done some sketches and smaller painting studies of this scene from a winery in Yamhill County a few years ago.  These were the fields beyond the winery on which I focused.

Last month, I did a commission for a collector who wanted a painting similar to one I had done previously. He requested a few alterations to the original and a smaller size. I was happy to give it a go. I liked his finished painting so much that I altered the original.

I had received feedback about the trees looking scary and dead (okay winter does remove the leaves) but they all had a point. I don’t want to paint dead and scary … I’m all about happy!

I wish I knew who first said that a painting isn’t finished until it is sold.  That is so totally true.  If you know, please leave a comment!

Below is the original and the sketch.

Some have said there is a hint of Klimt in my work.  I think that we both enjoyed patterns and adding shapes.  Do you agree?  I do it because I enjoy breaking up the large areas with playful spots of interest.  I wonder why Klimt did it.

This painting is a study for a larger one that I am doing.  The form factor is going to be different so I did a sketch for the study, the small painting and another sketch for the large one.  I’m painting the large one right now.

Below are the sketches for both paintings.  You might notice that I don’t adhere to my original sketch but make changes as I move through the painting process.  Painting the small one helps me to come to some decisions before I do a larger one and hopefully waste less paint!

I pass this farm about five days a week and for the last few weeks they have had these huge hay bales in the field.  I really wanted to paint the scene before the bales are removed so I finally took a few photos and did some sketching.

I did something different than my usual procedure and worked on a colorful under-painting.  One occasionally gets some interesting surprises doing it this way.  I sketched with black gesso on top of this.

Another painting started on site at Boston Mills State Heritage Site in Shedd, OR.  It is an old flour mill which was built in 1863 and continued to operate until 2002.
