I hope that everyone had a good Christmas. We enjoyed a wonderful family day, but I am enjoying the quiet of today and I finally picked up a brush for the first time in two weeks. It feels good to get back to my easel, I am working on a commission and hope to have it finished by the end of the week. This piece is from a walk along the Fort to Fort trail in Fort Langley, a beautiful spot on the Fraser River near Vancouver.

I have fallen behind in my painting lately, such a busy time of year. I am going to post some older pieces just so you know I am still around. I liked the somewhat graphic quality of these tree trunks and branches, and the lovely warm fall colours, and of course I can't resist a trail.

Forest Greens, 15x30, acrylic
As I have mentioned before I enjoy painting these long horizontals. I wanted to try a subject that has a strong vertical pull ie: the tree trunks. I think it creates a bit of a tension. The hits of warmth help to off set all of the greens, and the trail pulls you in. I seem to have had a lot of interruptions lately and I haven't done as much painting as I would like, therefore not enough posts. I hope to get in the swing at least by the new year.
