Springtime Aspens IV

Springtime Aspens IV
Original 30" x 40" x 0.75" painting
Golden, Liquitex, and Atelier acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas

Today's painting is a larger version of a composition that my patrons and I really love. A stand of aspens with new spring growth give me a feeling of renewal, and there will be plenty of opportunities around here to see them in their springtime glory in another month or so.

My commission work is going well. I have a couple of large paintings in the works, and will post some photos of those as they progress. I'm a little stressed with the workload right now, but I'd always rather have too much to do than not enough.
