The Pink Tree
No message here. Just an experiment with the pastels and the glaze.
The other pictures in this series have been too dark to frame and the brush strokes from the glaze too obvious. I didn't burnish this picture before I glazed and the results are better. It means I can't get that smudgy effect but the colours are much brighter.
December has become a bit of a lonely month for me, but I'm feeling stronger this year. After having spent so many years in the Yukon I know the psychological/spiritual boost of the winter solstice as the sun begins its slow return.
Looking forward to it.
