I'm a little slow at writing comments on my favorite artworks (OK, a "lot" slow). This was one painting that really caught my attention, and over the months, continued to do so as I viewed it repeatedly in my Message box. The faded colors you chose, the bent tree holding on to one or two leaves, the shadings, and the softness all combined to illustrate the quiet end of fall and the beginnings of a new winter. I think it's lovely.

Thanks Marilyn, most of my paintings live in my plan chest but this one is framed on my bedroom wall so I suppose that shows it means something to me. I think people identify with tree, we see something of our selves in them.

Thank you, I found the line of the tree attractive and its the main reason why I painted this one.

This is really lovely. Your ink work must be very subtle - I find it very difficult to pick it out.
Great work.

Thanks Andy, in this case (as in most cases) I used the ink in glazes over the acrylic, and then applied a little more acrylic to give it extra depth.

Of course! Here I was thinking you were using the ink for outlines, as that is the only way I use it :)
Many thanks for sharing.
