To the left is my depiction of a tree I drew in the fall in my neighborhood. I have only just begun the work, so what you see is, essentially, a rough draft, but it pleases me to actually be able to report progress.
This is a giant piece, at three feet by three feet, and all the hand work will take some time to complete. Instead of framing it, I plan to mount it onto a stretched canvas that has been covered in a cloth, like a traditional painting. My husband thinks it looks Amish. Hmmpphhtt. (Okay, maybe I see his point.)
