"In the Cool Mist" Oil Painting

18x36, Oil on Canvas
 
I got back from our Christmas vacation and this painting seemed all wrong.  It was like I was looking at a bare tree on one side.  What a difference it makes to get away from something you see over and over again.  I like it better as it seems more like a whole tree.  More green with the softness and cool still in the painting.
 
I always realize later I didn't need so many limbs but oh well! 
 
Enjoy the winter as your eyes can now easily glide over the limbs of the trees so graceful and elegant.
 
Oh, and here's hoping this is my FINAL attempt at the painting.

Final: "In the Cool Mist" Oil Painting

 
Finished the final details yesterday with some of the smaller branches and the cool, green grass.
 
I've got a 36x36 on the easel and am on my way to get it filled in today.  I'm ba-ack!  Whoo hoo!
