|"Strange twisted tree by the river" by Hilary J. England|
8" x 10" oil on canvas, 2014
I have been at work, working on some new paintings for the Dacia show in February, 2015, but I still always have time to paint something very beautiful in nature. This strange, twisted tree, by the river in Weissport, fascinated me almost immediately, and I could not resist but to do a fast study of it, even while the wind was forcefully encouraging me to go home, haha.
So, after one belly flop into the dirt after my easel went down for the count, and a complete scraping to the canvas, I still managed to capture the unique tree in all its splendor! Creation and the beauty of it never ceases to amaze me, and wonder at it like a child....
