Steilacoom Path--Original Landscape Oil Painting

This evening I am busy preparing to enter a county art purchase competition. Choosing five paintings that are at least three square feet, but not more than twelve square feet has kept me busy weighing the options and doing basic math. I usually think of my work on a square inch basis, so had to do some basic math to make sure my choices were large enough to qualify. It was easy to recognize that I didn't have to worry about going over 12 square feet. Although I would love to try painting something that large, the physical space in my studio barely accomodates my 24x30 inch paintings. This 18x24 inch painting barely qualifies if I've done my math correctly. It is based on a path that meaders off Wahop Lake Road at Fort Steilacoom Park south of Tacoma in Pierce County, Washington. The park is full of trails and a great place for walking and biking. Please contact me at smallimpressions@hotmail.com with the date of the blog entry if you are interested in purchasing this painting.

Oooo, I love the shimmering light you've captured in the tree and the depth of field in this one! Beautiful.

Good luck in the competition!
