The Places In-Between

The Places In-Between       8" x 6"      oil 

When I'm painting trees, I so often find that it is either the silhouette  of the whole, or the places between the branches that create interest. And, while I used fun color in the trunk and branches, I really had the most fun painting the blue patches, or negative spaces of the sky. It's always interesting to pay attention to what we see in both positive and negative space

I really enjoy the way this is painted, Mary. Juicy with movement and wonderful color.
