Hello everyone, I've not posted here in a while, I've been traveling and taking a bit of a creative break. Lots of new ideas percolating and I'll be putting them to canvas in the coming months. Currently I'm working on a large, 4' x 5' River Birch painting. I really enjoy painting river birch, with all the peeling, curving bark. I also have an abstract piece coming up, a bit of an experiment. I don't have any new paintings to share at the moment, so here's a close up photo of a lotus flower from my shoot at Reelfoot Lake last summer.
