"It's Gettin' There"

24"x18" Oil on Canvas

"The Portrait" is coming along. The sister has been formalized into the group and is "up to speed" with her brothers. I developed the oldest brother (in front) a little more today, too. For those who know this family, I wonder if you can recognize them yet. I'm not tellin' yet 'cause I'm keeping it a secret until it's finished. Let me know what you think so far.

Another view of this "Secret Garden" One would never think that they were feet away from a suburban neighborhood street. It feels more like a tropical LowCountry Garden hidden far, far away!

Our Painting group chose to stay close to home this day and my eye couldn't get beyond the lovely entryway into the back yard: a lush, green, tropical "paradise" of a yard!

At "the Path" there is a certain section that draws me. One element of this area is this wonderful, gnarly tree. The rough texture of the bark and the tangle of branches just draws me! So I had to attempt a painting.
This was a study. I want to go back sometime and develop another painting of these wonderful inspiring subjects.
