Progress in the Studio 5/13/2009: Trees are in for the spring

Now that I have finally finished all of my commission work, I can once again focus on my work. I seem to have gravitated towards trees again. It is funny how a subject emerges. I am enjoying the loose format after the structure of 5 commission paintings.

This is from a large tree I photographed in Southern Louisiana while cycling on the Tammy Trace Trail. The overall size is 48" high by 68" wide. Below is the photo I am working from.

These are 2 10 x 10 Crape Myrtle - not quit finished.

Last but not least, 2 - 10" x 15" Oak trees - Finished!!!

Fruit commission finished and ready to ship!!!

I finally finished my fruit commission and got final approval from the client. I will be able to ship these out by the end on the week. What a joy to finish a project.   Now I can return my focus to the Taco Mac commission. I think I should finish by the end of this week.

Now that I am almost done with my commission work, I can get back to work on my big ole Tree painting. If I work really hard, maybe I'll have it ready for Decatur..........maybe.
