I've been doing a lot of larger aspen paintings lately. I love the way they look in all seasons, and it's sort of fun to work on a series of them all at once. A few months ago, I would have shuddered at the thought of painting a 30 inch tall tree trunk, but I'm making some progress as I paint more of these. Practice, practice, practice...
In other news, tomorrow is my birthday - I'm turning the big 3-0!! I would have thought that turning thirty would kind of freak me out, but I'm actually just sort of content about it. After all, I have the cutest kid in the world, I live in the mountains, and I'm an artist. If you asked me ten years ago what I wanted to accomplish in life, those would be my big ticket items. Can't complain about that, right? I still feel a bit old though... Thirty just sounds so much older than twenty-nine!
