The Happy Tree – New oil painting project finally finished!


the-happy-tree-oct-2016

It has been a long time since last post… being very busy with many painting projects.
I have switched momentarily to oil painting, love the texture but still use acrylic for specific effects on other projects which demand that quality, texture & movement.
The birth of this painting was magical. It reflects the joys of our daily routine which usually go unnoticed.
The tree collection is thriving…
This one is called Happy to bring trees to our notice & appreciation.
I guess you can call it a work of gratitude.
Trees make life beautiful, it’s alive, it grows, summer it gives shade, winter shelter from winds & storms, it (sometimes) nourishes, provides wood for all kind of purposes, gives oxygen, lightens our hearts in every aspect, decorates our outdoors, indoors, minds & souls,goes with the cycle of seasons a symbol of rebirth…
This is a reminder that We are lucky to be surrounded by them day in day out!

You surely recognize this painting. I used it for my ” header ” and my profile.
I thought it is truly appropriate to the blogging universe.

The idea behind Interaction and influences is, like its name clearly states.
We all interact and influence our environment as a people.
In the blog world it goes much further!

If you look closely each circle ” borrows ” the color of the adjacent one yet
keeps the basics of his own.

This time, I challenged myself with extremely thin lines which I ended up loving to do as it is a very soothing exercise.
Is it because it’s a tedious work of progress and slows down the maddening pace of life we live in today? Maybe…
Nevertheless, I hope you will find it refreshing, soothing… whatever effect you wish it to have on you 🙂

Hi everyone!

This painting was effortless, just pure relaxation and joy to add color on top of color
until I got the right texture and light to it.
Let me know your impression… Your likes and comments are always very much appreciated 🙂

Sorry about the quality of this photo, it’s a bit hazy but it’s sometimes difficult to get it right.
As usual, I let my brush guide me and unravel the story that was intended. It’s a way of relaxing as
as well as another.
I am always amazed of the possibilities, if I only remember, every time I pick up the brush,
to let go before I start and not want to control the space and time I’m in.
If I do so, something wonderful always happens as a result.
I hope you like it 🙂
