"Heavenly Tree Stand" palette knife oil painting
Well, this is a different kind of painting for me. It's a bit experimental, sort of the usual approach gone awry. I paint on Wednesdays with a dear friend who is a watercolor painter. This is one of the highlights of my week. She was showing me a watercolor technique to make the trunks of trees and I thought I could try it with oil paints. Guess what! It didn't work out as I expected but I continued onward and made something else out of it. When looking at it from a distance, it seemed that the tree stand was floating, thus the title of the painting. Maybe there are some floating trees in heaven, who knows? I'm not in a great hurry to find out, but it's just something to think about!
