Grove started as a free-form session where I just sat down and started painting. The result of that first session was a grove of trees at night, but I wasn't thrilled with the piece. It was taken off the easel and I walked past it for several weeks until a lull in other work and a little inspiration brought it back in focus. I started with a thin whitewash and then began adding many layers of paint using brushes, scrapers, and natural sponges. As the layers built up, so did the textures and blend of colors. The outlines of the trees were still subtly preserved and I can still see a bit of the original grove when I look at it although it has become so much more.

The piece is 16"x40" (40x102cm), 1.5" (4cm) deep, acrylic on canvas, painted sides. Signed lower right. Not ready to hang. Painting will be packed by artist and shipped free to customer.
