Many aspiring artists know that they want to paint, they just don't know what to paint. I encourage my students to find something they love and pour themselves into it. Among other things, I love trees. I could paint them for days on end and not tire of their beauty.
This painting is entitled, "Salient Repose". I was taking a walk down at the Chattahoochee River and was captivated by the light on this tree. I knew it
would become a painting, an expression of my impression on that lovely day.
