Sky Window

This piece is from several weeks ago.  It was painted over a few weekends.  It seems to be from a more wordless place than usual, to me, so I have little to say about it.  Watercolor - 19 x 19 inches.  Click on it for a larger view.

The Cherry Dryad which Grenouille mentioned in the previous post, is all but finished and signed. I'll show her later. The commissioned piece has inspired me to try several more dryads. Like the patron, I've long been fascinated by the subject, though I had not thought to paint it. I also got interested in caryatids, and drew them in highschool and college.

It's both a beautiful and very serene image. The trees are well matched - strong but as changeable in their foliage as the living beings they are.

I look forward to seeing Dryad in her finished form. I bet she's lovely.

I hope you're enjoying the best of the deep quiet that comes at this time of year. Happy Christmas, Steve.

Beautiful. Your greens and blues are always so striking.
