Old Willow


6”x8”     Oil     Canvas Board

This is a very quick study of an old weeping willow down by the river. I only managed to work on it for about an hour and a half last evening before the light was gone and I was chilled to the bone. It’s amazing how cold you can get standing in one spot for that length of time. I also quit because I didn’t want to ruin the painting. I thought I would fix it up when it dried a little, but I think I’ll leave it just like it is. I like the wildness and freshness…kind of like the bent old tree itself, blowing in the wind.
