Black Bamboo


Oil on Linen

As I started the design, I was reminded of the bamboo grove I have  near the studio. It was interesting to play the strong vertical shapes against the warm/cool and light/dark colors. I thought of Munsell among the trees.

Oil on Canvas Board

This was the painting I completed at the 2013 T. C Steele Paint Out. Always enjoying painting on his property as I feel the spirit of him paint in his nearby studio every time I've been there.
