Aspens- Ridgetop

Aspens- Ridgetop
22 x 7, oil

The lovely white tree trunks of an aspen always seem to steal the show. Even in this painting, with fall colors in their leaves and in the ground cover, the white barks in the sunlight are memorizing. View more of my paintings on my website- SpohnStudio.com

Aspens- Barks and Grass

Aspens- Bark and Grass
22 x 7, oil

Felt great to be back painting with my painting knives again today. The knives give a lot of texture and also allow for a more interpretive painting. I loved how the grasses and small shrubs in this scene produced a color pattern all their own and the aspen trunks formed vertical ribs touching the sky.

Aspens- Me and My Friends

Aspens- Me and My Friends
22 x 7, oil

Aspens like to have lots of friends. After all they are connected by one root system, and often grow in groups as well as separately.  More of these aspen paintings are posted on my website: SpohnStudio.com

Aspens--Dance With Me

Aspens- Dance With Me
22 x 7, Oil

Aspens are magical. They can be straight and tall rising to the sky with shaking leaves; or they can have twists and turns in their trunks like they were frozen while dancing in the night. This painting depicts two of those dancers.  I wonder which song they danced with so rhythmically.
