Painted Aspens

I should not post this picture until a mat as been place around it, but it has been six weeks since I posted anything. and it looks like it might be a while before I can get a mat around it picture. So, I am asking you to just 'pretend' the masking tape that is hold the paper on the masonite board is a mat.

Maybe the outside mat might be a middle tone gray leaning towards a soft purple and the inner mat would be a darker gray leaning towards the blue family.

It is suppose to snow on Wednesday 2-7 inches so I doubt I will be trekking to Englewood to have it matted until next week which means I won't have a mat for at least two weeks.


  1. Is that water color? It is very striking! I love the contrast of colors.

  2. It is a watercolor, what make the colors so bright is the watercolor paper is covered with gesso (really a white acrylic paint) before executing the drawing.

  3. I love your aspens! The colors are so vibrant! I want to come see them in person!

  4. Wow, you did that! It is absolutely beautiful.
