I have been working hard lately with little time to dedicate to my art. So I have been doing smaller works just to keep the art muscles from going into atrophy. I am also looking for new directions in my art. Tentatively working through changes and exploring and experimenting to stay fresh.
Colour and abstraction are the theme in this small work. I was less focused on rendering the trees and the opening in the forest and more interested in the feeling of light and colour. I am growing less interested in realism. The brain is so much more powerful than we can imagine and will complete a scene much better than any of us can with a brush. We just need to give it enough to work with and then let the viewer work his/her magic
