The Dance

The Dance: Wolf Willow and Dogwood

This one is big! And heavy! And awkward to carry! 

It has been quite a work in progress and kept me busy all through Art Trek weekend and beyond. The colours are a bit fantastical, but I'm okay with that- I wanted it to be full of life, even though it is in the fall when foliage is actually dying away. I wanted it to feel hopeful and celebratory; I wanted the leaves to feel dance-y. If this painting makes you smile and maybe brightens your day, I'm a happy girl.
