October Dogwood I - Not For Sale = Prints Only

October Dogwood I

There is something about trees that fascinate me.  And that fascination often

drives me to paint them.  Not necessarily individually or even in groups

(although I love to do those types of paintings).  Instead, I find the same joy

in the development of a painting or drawing of various parts of the trees: 

limbs, branches, trunks, roots, etc.

Recently, I opened an old box of photographs which I had taken with a

35mm camera (that's how I knew they were "old" since I now use a digital

camera).  I felt like I was getting an early Christmas present.  Inside, there

was a stack of photos of the fall leaves in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  In

particular, about a half dozen were of the leaves of a dogwood tree when

they were at their peak colors.  It's hard to describe my excitement when I

saw them.  But, perhaps the reader will understand part of it when you know

that within 24 hours I had completed a small color study and was part way

into this painting.  Yes, I have an absolute fascination with trees (including

the leaves).
