Oil Painting
9 x 12 inches

The plein-air season is well underway for me, and this is one I did recently not far from my home in Colorado.  Aspen trunks are a subject I've returned to many times in the field.  They are a great opportunity to study light and shadow, and each tree has its own variations on the standard Aspen themes.  Plein air is certainly not the only type of painting I do, but it is an important part of the mix and helps me develop good painting habits.
