Fantasy Meadow 11" x 14" oil on canvas
This is one where my imagination just took over. Some time ago I was painting plein air at Sauvie Island where there were beautiful views all around. I took some photos for future reference of an old dead oak tree that was surrounded by shrubs with white blossoms. That was the starting point for this painting, but the tree looked too stark. So I adding more flowers, the dead tree disappeared and orange flowers appeared, and more trees in the distance. It's as if the dead tree decomposed and created new life.
