Finally, some new oils








Here are the paintings that I've been thinking about and prepping panels for (with one more that's still wet).  The top one is 8x8" and the bottom one is 8x10".  I think the maple tree that these are on is a bigleaf maple...I'm still learning about the trees around here.  I'm better with pines, firs, tamaracks, that sort of thing.

Whenever I start a new series or project, I wonder if anybody else will "get it" or if I'm making work that only I like.  So I guess I'm feeling a little apprehensive about these pieces right now.  But at the same time, I like them, so maybe somebody else will...

Thank you! I'm considering whether they're getting too soft, though...but at the same time, whenever I'm painting I go back over all the edges constantly and can't seem to stop myself :)
