Returning From the Woods




Returning From the Woods

I’m not sure if they will
Return to us
They appear
Momentarily
Ghosts

I’m not sure if they should
Surrender for us
They flicker
Temporarily
Enticed

It’s been awhile since the initial sketch.
22”x 28” acrylic on stretched canvas

    1. They do seem to flow here. I continued working on the painting this morning. They don’t flow anymore. I’ll post where the painting is now, later in the day.
      Thank you

  4. This is one of those paintings I would dearly love to become a part of...to drift into those amazing trees and stay forever!
    The phantom-like figures could hide here for all eternity and never be found. That is a concept I find utterly irresistible.
    A truly fabulous painting!:)
