This month I will be posting weekly painting challenges for my friends at Daily Paintworks online gallery. This week's challenge is tree gestures - capturing the essence and posture of a tree without getting bogged down in its details (click HERE for full description). I will post my own efforts for each challenge, and would love for painter friends to join me. If you are not a painter, please join the fun by simply appreciating the wonderful, idiosyncratic gestures of trees in your world.
"Give a tree its gesture… in a tree there is a spirit of life, a spirit of growth and a spirit of holding its head up.” The Art Spirit, Robert Henri
