I first started this painting with a simple stump with green moss growing in the middle of it. It had representations of glass globe ornaments around the stump that I kept seeing in the Grainery where they blow glass which is also where I have my studio. I liked it and some fellow studio renters next to my studio liked it but...I wasn't jumping up and down inside like I wanted to! So I studied more Van Gogh and kinda well destroyed it (in a good way) with layers and layers of paint!
Here of late I have been OBSESSED with the combination of thick dried colored paint and brushing over top of it gold metallic paint with my fingers. The result is what you see below.
