Beyond the Window

beyond-the-window-smI started the year off kind of slow, feeling creatively blocked with my art, and not really motivated to pick up a paintbrush.  I finally just got out a canvas and started throwing paint around, and painted two strange ladies that looked half-fish, half-fairy.  I wish I had taken a photo of them, but they just weren’t working for me, and eventually I painted over them and came up with this.  It’s quite a bit different than my usual look, but I’m kind of intrigued by the end result.

If you look closely at the bottom of the second tree, just below the branches, you can see the face that was once one of the fish-fairies.  There are two eyes still visible in the trunk of the tree.  One of the cool things about these multi-layered paintings!
