Day sixteenth seems to have a particularly magical tinge to it for both of us. I found myself pulling this imaginary image out of a sheet of watercolor paper that I had previously experimented on creating different textures. This image seemed to be waiting there for me to find it. I’ve always thought of trees as living beings, and I am fascinated by the notion that the root base of a tree is often every bit as big as the sweep of its branches. The storm and the trees are alive.
This painting insisted I stay with it until it was completed. so I did.
Nikki’s sixteenth painting is of a Bryce Canyon Raven, a cousin of the ravens near her home. The painting was a rescued work that had been started earlier but out aside. She captures the dramatic presence of this magical bird. I happen to love ravens and crows and this painting now belongs to ME!
We are enjoying our shared creative journey. Thank you for joining us!
