8"x10", Oil on Canvas Board
© 2011 Bernard Echanow

This is my submission to the Alice Thompson Calypso Moon Artist Movement "Landscape Challenge." "Sycamores" began as a plein air painting. I spent a couple of additional hours  refining it in the studio.

By the way, "Mattie" (working title: "Matanuska") was completed and is visiting an art show through March 25. I'll be posting her photo sometime after that date.

j'aime beaucoup ce tableau, en particulier les couleurs du feuillage et cet arbre qui semble sortir de terre telle une main qui va attraper la lumière. Bravo !

Sorry for the long delay in responding; I'm finally up and running with my new computer.

Merci pour votre commentaire trés poetique, J ai beaucoup apprécié.

Good to hear from you. Thank you for the nice compliment. The Painter's Connection misses you, too!
