I was so very excited and had so many, many ideas on how to paint this tree that I was constantly changing this piece. I decided to get another canvas and paint the same subject twice at the same time. I enjoy the creative process so much that many times I paint over probably what could have been a pretty good piece of art. To solve that challenge I now am simultaneously painting this tree on two different canvases in two different ways with two very different palettes. (Now that I am thinking about this I may need more than two canvases! ) It is so much fun. Exhilerating!
While I paint I am often reminded of a quote of our art buddy, Vincent Van Gogh, "I put my heart and soul into my work and I have lost my mind in the process!" Let's see where these two pieces take me.
