Acrylic on Mat Board - 12" x 9 ½"
THE CRYSTAL TREE
This one arose from brush marks on a scrap piece of mat board fished out of my wastebasket. I had been testing a new angular brush, making strokes in various directions in white on a purple-black wash which had been applied some time earlier. The shape of the combined brushstrokes suggested a Christmas tree, and since it was the winter solstice I played with the idea to see where it would take me.
