Painting - Spirits of the Ghost Gum

'Spirits of the Ghost Gum'
acrylic on canvas
30.5 by 40.6 cm

This is my offering for this easter weekend. If you have noticed that one of the spirits is black... you may wonder why he is a different colour to the other ghost gums. I have thought of 3 reasons, all plausible reasons. So whatever reason you may think of, it is quite likely THE reason :o)

OMG Sulea!! Such detail, such amazing colours!! Love it love it love it!! *sigh* I wish I was so much better with words (you know poetic) but alas I'm not (sorry). I read comments by other bloggers and think "that's exactly what I want to say" but can't quite get it out the same way. I think I'm probably what you would call, straight to the point :-) But believe me when I say, this took my breath away!! Big hugs and hope you had a great weekend!! Nat xx

Thanks Nat *BIG HUG* :oD Makes me really happy to know that you liked my painting. :o) i was a bit impatient with this one. Probably needs more work on it actually.
so sad the long weekend is almost over.. :(

This is amazing. There are so many things it could say, and yet I know what it is saying to me. It blows me away the talent you have to give voice to paint and canvas.

a beautiful piece - ghost gums have a spiritual feel to them, ditto to all previous comments, an intake of breath is required when we look at your work. And thanks again, Sun was fun. Love, Carmel xx
