The Path That Follows The River 10x10 oil

In the afternoon I found this path through the woods along side a river. I really enjoyed painting the moss covered tree trunks. It is always fun to paint in the woods. One of the perks of painting in the woods is the solitude and that other than the birds and chipmunks you aren't going to have to deal with an audience. I recently read an article about painting in the city and all of the difficulties involved. The most obvious one being all of the people that stop to watch and talk. The author came up with a great remedy to that particular problem...put out a cup and sign asking for donations! Nothing gets a crowd to move on faster than asking for a donation.

The cup thing made me chuckle. Your painting is so warm and inviting. I'd rather be in the woods with the chipmunks!

This is a very beautiful woodland rendition. You can feel the dampness of the moss. I walk the dog on a path very much like this one, and you really have captured the sunlit areas and beautiful greens.

wonderful. Look at those brushstrokes along the tree. I love the donations idea! Another fav of mine is I've heard is to dress like the unibomber with a nice black hood. hee hee
