Truly Beautiful Aspen Scene

I’m so glad you encouraged us to do this. I didn’t really want to paint this particular scene as I didn’t feel adequate. As I worked on it I continually criticize myself. I started to shift as you taught to what do I like about this and it was the areas of light.

Initially it was so dark, that I went back over and added flecks of light randomly just to brighten it. I guess I’m feeling very autumnal, as I realize it’s still fairly dark. I’m very happy I painted this! @Santa fe Art classes!

Thanks for helping us to channel you , Kat

Wow, Kat,,,, this Aspen scene is SO lovely…
Truly beautiful.  FEELS like your Washington forests.  
Your touch is Delicate,,, sensitive…feminine. Stunning!

Please know that the internal critic is a battle that gets quieted with practice….I PROMISE. 
It’s NOT just YOU….its anyone attempting a new endeavor!
