I started this piece during the recent Playshop call with Melissa Dinwiddie, then went back and finished it up later. The tree and figure are painted with just two colors, quinacridone gold and amazonite genuine, and then I added in a bit of soft cadmium yellow when I went back and did the sky, and added in the fuller foliage. I especially like the way some of the leaves have little haloes of gold, and the rich greens and browns that came out of just those two colors mixed in different proportions.

I think this would make a great piece to put in a bookshelf, nestled between books to remind you of the joy of reading. The frame isn’t included, but I’d be happy to frame it for you for an additional fee.
