This type of painting starts with an abstract background. I study it, meditate, and then decide what would look good on it. This canopy of trees is what I came up with. I have preserved this acrylic painting with a fixative and polycrylic coating. I then purchased a 14 inch wood block, painted it and adhered my painting to the board. I then preserved the entire piece with an additional coating. It is framed and ready to hang. I have two views of this artwork.
