28" x 22" oil on canvas (unframed)
Based on a photo of my two children climbing an old tree. A few things about the painting (in case you were wondering). I did want the unfinished look. This was accomplished by using oil paint applied very transparently with lots of turp and stand oil. Yes, I also wanted the drips to stay, too. I was going for a sort of "anonimous" look, thus the lack of detail and features. This is a piece reflecting feeling and mood rather than technical skill. I hope I pulled it off successfully.
