IT IS A MYSTERY
24x24 on canvas..If you want to get a better look give a click. I could not get a close view, this is the best I could do. I have a new camera..Can you say still must be the photographer.
So I know you want to know the story behind the piece..OK maybe I just want to tell you..Even on the computer I can not stop sharing my stories. I was riding down the road and I look over and saw this swamp grey, dark and dreary. Mystery in watery darkness with trees standing in the middle with their arms pointing to the sky..To me there was sadness in the trees wanting to dance but could not because they were stuck in the still water of the swamp.
I did not have my camera..Don't you hate that when you see something and you can not get that shot to remember the perfect of the entire surrounding.
So I started this painting, planning on trying to catch that on canvas dark, sadness of trees.
I started with darkness then BOOM these swamp wood witches jump onto my canvas. Dancing and inviting. So I was pulled into their magic .
Maybe one day I will travel down that road again and catch the photo shot of the dark swamp and the trees that were sad..
But today I am dancing with the swamp witches .
May you always dream in color.
