Redemption - Fall Birch And Aspen
Painting - Oil Painting On Canvas
A large palette knife painting of my back yard trees in their autumn glory. The painting was originally going to be named "Looking up", but half way through painting it, I started getting frustrated. My husband, trying to help, asked me what I was trying to achieve with the painting. I snapped at him, "Redemption! I'm embarrassed by my lack of skill, by my big paintings that turn out so different than what I initially intend. I want redemption!" But as soon as these words came out of my mouth, I was given my focus. I stopped trying to render every tiny leaf, I stopped worrying about what others would think, and I started thinking of the fall, the trees, and the underlying sign that was put there just for me to find. If you want to see photos of me painting this, and learn more of the sign I saw, go to http://talyajohnson.com/if-you-cant-paint-paint-big/
