Finally had time to get back to the drawing table, literally. Sometimes, when a long break has occurred, it's really hard to settle in and focus on painting. I squirreled away a bunch of time today for myself and boy am I glad I did.
Today's works all stem from imagination for the most part. A few photo references were used but only to get a sense of basic shapes. Otherwise, the work is all very intuitive. I did not sketch out any plans beforehand. Some thoughtful decisions were made along the way but mostly I just followed the paintbrush around the paper.
One of these will be this year's holiday card from Birchtree Studio. I'm keeping it a secret for now but you can leave your vote in the comments box. If you do, your name will go into a drawing for one of this month's paintings. Drawing to be held on Sunday, Dec. 1. Don't delay!
