Seussy Tree

This started out with just random shapes and I worked on the first layer of painting them all in. I let it sit about a week and studied it and then came back and put in all the details that I think helped to tie it all together. I've been looking at "The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss" and somehow this reminds me of his playful bright colors. I like it that way, never too bright for me.

Floating Color

Fish are lovely floating colors and so peaceful to watch. Meet Blue II, we gave him this vase we found at Goodwill with some of my son's marble collection to brighten up his watery world. The silly fish spends lots of time at the top when it much more pretty down below.
