Rothko trees and upcoming show

oil on linen 36x36
I am finishing my paintings for the upcoming show at Gallery B in Bethesda. It will be up April 1-25th.  I will have my easel set up at the gallery and working there Wednesday through Saturday 12-6. There will a couple of free classes as well. Sign up for my newsletter and I will be sending out the specifics soon. (Link for my website.) Or, of course, you can email me and I will snail mail the show postcard.
The inspiration for this painting was a plein air painting I did this autumn. Patience and glazed layers was the way this one was created. I want to do the same layered opalescence. It's funny, my wonderful framer Bosco said to me that I was continually changing in this body of work. The only thing I could think was I kept seeking the best way to "feel." I'll still keep looking.

What delicious colour! Love it. Sometimes paintings just have minds of their own and will take you where they want to go.

Good luck with the show
