"Misty Mountain" 30x30, Oil Painting
I had done a little 6x6 of this image and bought a 30x30 to do one larger. I stared at this blank box for a few days thinking, "Oh, that's big." I wondered if I could actually do the same thing again only bigger.
I have to tell you that I just prayed and felt a great joy while doing this painting. I do believe that trees speak to us and now have found a way to incorporate "clouds" in with the trees. Well, I love it. If your like me you feel a sense of fear sometimes in doing something that's "new ground." Can I just share that I think God loves for us to call upon Him in those times. He loves to be ASKED into our world.
Through the painting I went back and put in more trees than it's little twin 6x6. I also liked leaving it sparse with just the feeling of the trees in the mist. I like the mystery that mist conveys the haunting and yet softness of it.
Well, now I'm wanting to get some more 30x30 canvases...
