Can’t see the wood for the trees…

But, in a good way! I was painting in the LTS journal and wanted to design my own Christmas card again this year, so I hit on the happy idea of using green and trees… and cut out a couple of stencil shapes to use on the palette knifed background!

Fits in nicely with The Three Muses challenge “Back to nature…”, this week:

O Christmas tree(s)!

It’s my usual concoction of acrylic paints, Neocolours and a palette knife… as you can see in this detailed shot:

  1. Oh this is wonderful, love that rich green!

  2. Gorgeous lush greens. Have you been watching Secret Britain on BBC1 Sunday nights. It reminds me of some of the magical places they have visited – ancient woodland all overgrown with moss… lush and full of story!

  3. This is great, Rosie. Love your trees!

  4. Rosie, you are a woman of many talents, not the least of which is wielding the palette knife. Wow, the vividness of the green almost blinds me. I love color so this to me is absolutely scrumptious. Christmas card or otherwise.

  5. The lushness of the greens almost takes my breath away. Just beautiful, my friend!

  6. How brilliantly talented you are. This is fabulous. Annette x

  7. This is bursting with life and nature Rosie- a wonderful entry- green and fresh! Love it!

  8. A truly artistic piece, Rosie – your Christmas cards will be wonderful!

    really really love these bold pieces you recently make… the shapes and colors – just my cup of tea!!

  14. Christmas and green! Two of my favorite things! These are just GORGEOUS, Rosie. Might I be so bold as to suggest that we exchange cards this year?
