Golden Needles

"Golden Needles"

Acrylic on canvas panel

When the moon zapped a silvery sheen over the snow in the forest, the pines preferred gold, and took on a glow of their own.

What started as an exercise in two colors on black, became a finished piece in short order. The sparse gold "needles" spoke the essence of forest on top of the metallic silver paint, so I left it to dry.  I made another one or two in metallic colors, that I'll post over the next couple of days.

Circumventing Reality

This piece was done at the same time as yesterday's, but I had tackled robust color and a lot more texture.  It's quite lovely in person.  Wow, I was feeling my oats!

I scraped, dabbed, combed and painted in shadows on this one. There's also gold metallic paint in the goings on. Yup, I'll be doing more of these!

See this one in my gallery on Dailypaintworks. com.

Thank you for looking today.
