Happy Friday!

New painting for sale on Etsy soon! I started this one in the fall and had never done a painting quite like this before. For once, I didn't work from a photograph...I worked from the everyday fall trees that I noticed here, there, and everywhere. The trees are uniform, simple, and not too detailed. And the canvas itself is unstretched and unprimed--a scrap I had folded up on the shelf. Without gesso, the paint soaks right into the canvas and stays quite bright even when layered! I love the look of the unprimed canvas and frayed edges so I left a good amount of it unpainted and exposed.... I'm thinking this would look even more gorgeous custom framed--Where's that 60% off coupon when you need it?!

Happy Friday :D
