Aspen Windows

Aspen Windows
18x24 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg

 This painting was created in my studio from a photograph taken in Glorieta, New Mexico.  I was drawn to this view because of the sections between the trees. They reminded me of windows.  I thought it very interesting how each natural window had its' own composition.  New Mexico is one of my favorite states.  I probably have as many photos taken in that state as all others I've traveled combined.  I use to want my husband and I to retire there, but as grandchildren began to enter the picture I began to rethink my desires.  From an artist's point of view every state of the United States of America has a certain beauty.  We are indeed a blessed people to live in such a great place in the world.

You must have had fun painting the lovely patterns on the bark of the Aspens, love the view between the trunks. Hope you had a restful break.
