Stormlight – complete

The sun limns the distant fields; the tree stands ablaze against the dark tumultuous sky. Everything is movement – the clouds jostle and bump each other in their path across the sky, the leaves quiver with the doomed effort of staying with the tree, the light ebbs and flows as the storm moves overhead.

My (almost) last painting of 2010! Happy New Year everyone! :)

The home stretch now, I think just one more session and I’ll be done. :) A little bit of tree, a little bit of sky, a little bit of field and the road. There’s lots of movement in the tree and the sky – is the storm approaching or has it just passed? Is night falling or is this early morning with the promise of a new day to shake off the effects of a fall storm? Some stories are evident in the play of shape and colour and some are only hinted at.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!
