Embrace the Face: Tree

I showed the following painting as a work in progress in the previous post. Well I've now finished it except for the varnish/sealer. I like to take photos before this is added as the sealer usually adds shiny spots in the photo.

The painting was created for the Embrace the Face challenge. The September theme is tree. If you visit the Embrace the Face blog, and find the post where the theme is given, then click on the comments of that post, you will find the links to the artists who are participating in the challenge and the pieces they've created for this theme.

My painting is a mixed-media creation and I painted it on a 10" x 20" gallery wrapped canvas. I used acrylic paint, ink, pencil, and paper on this. I had sketched this scene about two months or so ago in my sketchbook and thought with the tree theme that it could work well.
