Ready to Hang
A friend of mine snapped the image for this painting while on a trip to Alaska. She went off of the beaten path to get this great shot while hiking in the forest. What drew me to paint this scene though, was the peaceful solitude that it conveys. I imagine the only eyes that experience this quiet place belong to the animals that live there.
I paint in both representational and abstract styles, enjoying the process of both. I rely heavily on the palette knife in my painting and I tend to gravitate to bold colors.
