The White Tree

The White Tree
I'm not fond of New Year's resolutions, so I don't make them anymore. But, if I were to have made one, it would have been to paint more frequently. Instead of resolving to paint, I sat down and painted.

This is my first new painting of the new year! I wanted to paint something very Januaryish. I love the pale branches with the deep red fruits. I might have to do more in this color scheme.

I also painted a little black cat with a pretty bow-tie. But, his head came out fairly malformed. Really, it looks like his brain is in danger of exploding through his skull. So, I think I shall work on him a bit more before posting him. When he is less ugly, I'll show him to you.

Tomorrow night I'm expecting a rather large box of new goodies from my printer for the little shop. I'm pretty excited to have a full wall of lovely pictures finally. I hope you'll stop by to see it!

I think your composition is great, I love the pale tealish hue. It reminds me of the northern lights.

Lovely painting! My resolution is to draw more dragons for the Year of the Dragon, but I haven't started yet - so your doing instead of resolving is quite inspiring. ;D
