I just LOVE the combination of that beautiful sky and the graphic tree limbs! And the figure being your Dad... you should not sell this one! It's wonderful.

Rahina - thanks for your lovely comment! I'm really enjoying your portrait work on your blog ... your journey is quite engaging.

Kelley - thanks so much - I always love hearing from you! I know, I know ... I really went back and forth on whether to sell this one, but I finally decided to. I'm glad I did; the person who ended up buying it was so happy & appreciative.

There have been a few pieces in the past that I really hated to let go, but now I like to think of them out there in the world somewhere. Sometimes I get nice updates from my buyers saying how much they love the art hanging in their home. That helps makes it easier to let my favorites go!

Wow - the way you paint the light coming through the trees is just stunning! I love all of your work, but these landscapes with the trees are some of my favorites!
