It's A Beautiful Tree, Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


12" x 12" x 1.5"  Acrylic, $150

This painting was so much fun to create.
First I painted all kinds of colors randomly all over the canvas.
Then I looked for a glimmer of an image with the patches of color.
I thought maybe a tree was in there somewhere, so using the background colors,
I began "sculpting" the image by painting the negative space.
I've been pretty happy with the results.
The 1.5" sides are painted in the same colors,
it has a hanging wire, and so it is ready to hang,
no frame needed.
