GBY Aspen 1
Aspens.... I freaking love them.
First there's the beauty. Instant negative space in the landscape. The repetition of line, the way the branches drop leaving "eye"...they're so cool
Then there's the science. Aspens are clones, one big root ball with lots of stems (trunks)- like a patch of daisies, but big. Some of the oldest and largest organisms on the planet are aspen groves.
The next few days are all about aspen. These paintings especially are about texture and contrast.
