Ghost Tree 1

This is my latest painting. It's 6 x 14 inches. The tree is acrylic paint and the background is watercolor. There are a few ink touches too. The paper is Strathmore coldpress 140lbs. Most of it was painted while listening to the audio book of Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping. I usually paint while listening to music or audio books. It's funny that I feel like the words or notes somehow get caught up in the painting, though not in any linear or logical way. I can usually remember what I was listening to just by looking at a painting.

It was a pretty good week. The high point was taking the ferry out to Bainbridge Island with my friends Janusz and Alex. We wandered about, had lunch at Blackbird Bakery (which has lots of gluten free offerings!), went to Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, Eagle Harbor Books, and finished up at Mora Icecreamy - and they have gluten free icecream cones, even better!

This painting is available on Etsy.
