"Summer Moonrise", 12x24, oil on birch panel

My love affair with eucalyptus trees continues with "Peach Blush". These trees remind me of ballet dancers- willowy and graceful. Their limbs are evocative of the épaulement of a ballet dancer, demonstrating style and mystery as they bend from their twisting, bending trunks in much the same way a dancer uses her shoulders, neck and head to create different illusions of carriage.

This was painted with palette knife only, and has beautiful passages of impasto throughout.
