This is the final piece in the series I titled Solstice. I wanted to explore the astronomical influence of the suns position in relation to some forms of nature, namely these branches and leaves. How different these branches would appear if we were approaching the longest day of the year, rather than the shortest. Also, how time is passing, so fleeting, and I want to recognize that too.

I changed my palette for the shadows in this; wanting to create more warmth. I am enjoying the looseness with which these pieces were painted; I was without expectations and I love how that felt! I feel grateful for the loving support of my friends and family and hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
