Taking a Technique to the Woods

After taking Karlyn's abstract workshop (I have really neglected all my collage principles I haven't done in over 3 years!!! LOL), I decided to try a bit of something wth my failed color sanding. I stared at the shapes and the colors and the mass reminded me of the woods (surprise!! LOL) -- and so I added the trees to attempt a semi-abstract painting.

I have another one of these 'not quite successful' pieces .. and I"m waiting for it to 'speak' to me for the next step ... Thus far,all I'm getting is silence! LOL

It snowed a bit yesterday -- merely flurries and the 'teasing' of those dark, heavy clouds amid sunshine and bright pink rays ... absolutely beautiful skies! But mercy, I don't think my hands have thawed out yet!

Stay warm everyone!

Wow; now this is what I call a masterful "save." It's beautiful and looks exactly like you intended it this way from the beginning. Bravo!
Hugs,

This is wonderful! Looks soft, mysterious, magical. An illustration from a children's book? Could be!
