  2. Well you're a man who seems to be as fascinated by tree forms as I am. I ran into your blog at William Cook's Art. Having just picked up my oil paint brushes this weekend after a thirty year hiatus with acrylics, I'm surfing for artists who work in the medium. I'm looking forward to following you.

  4. Welcome L.W. Roth!
    I really do love trees.
    I wish you a happy journey into your exploration of creating with oil paints after a long time away. I find myself enjoying them as well as acrylics. Creativity has no bounds-just do what feels right at any given time and enjoy the process.

      It is dreamy to me too. I walk early mornings and enjoy the light-different everyday as the sun is rising.
