Closeup of stick

closeup of stick
10/14: Closeup of stick, oil on canvas panel, 3x5 in.

Here is something somewhat abstract. I was going to set up an arrangement of sticks and leaves like a snapshot of random ground, thinking I had prepared a larger panel when I hadn't. So instead I focused on a portion of a stick purely as exercise (like jumping jacks), not caring much about accuracy, only color. In the back is a bunch of pine needles and a red leaf reduced to a shape.

Old English word of the day:

rind [r«źnd]: bark, rind, crust.
