Australia Revisited 3
Gum trees in Australia have such a gleem to them, when the sun hits them it's magic.
This is from a photo I found in my aunt's ichives, and while halfway through painting this while I watched my favorite telivision programs, I realized I had seen something like this in Hazel's work?
I looked at the book I did on her a year or so ago, and voila, she has also done an image of the same scene.
I am posting both on the blog, so you can compare. I am amazed I did not realize my overlap sooner, I did that with another of her painting choices too, guess she was my mentor after all, and I certainly like the same scenes she used to paint.
But all that aside, this is my painting, warts and all.
