Here I was working with Daily Paintworks Challenge to paint rocks. I also wanted to paint the halo effect caused by backlighting a leafy tree. In this narrow format you have to get clever with composition, cropping so the mind fills in the blanks. Here the leafy tree is only a suggestion created by branches dropping from the top of the painting.

This series is intended to be mounted on top of mat board. The image comes right to the edge where the dry paint creates a slightly uneven look. I suggest trimming the mount to a standard frame size 7" x 5" or 10" x 8". The painting comes unmounted, but for an extra charge I'm happy to do the work for you.
