From The Forest Floor

Inspiration is all around us when it comes to painting.  During a walk in a national forest I came across a grouping of ferns that had felt the first frost.  Parts of the ferns were different colors than the usual green.  I loved the grouping and decided to try it as a batik painting.  This was my first attempt and I wasn't happy with the whole painting so I cropped it into a better picture.  After removing the wax I added more paint to get better values in the painting.  After that I was really happy with the painting.
