Mom’s Aspens. 2015. Acrylic on canvas. 20×24

I’ve been awful at painting recently (i.e. no motivation, little inspiration, and meager free time). Luckily, my parents have a new home that has lots of empty wall space and they were visiting in September. So I had someone to paint for and a timeline to work with.  I was given a color scheme and I knew my mom already had pictures of trees hanging– so aspens in the fall was a natural choice. The hardest part was melding my style with something my parents would like.

Aspens are a lot of fun to paint and this one got a fair amount of positive feedback. My roommate said I should do a piece like this for our place so, needless to say, I’ll be doing more paintings of aspens.
