Return of the Twisted Tree / by debbie rich

There are a whole lotta swirls goin' on, so I'm going to rename this piece Twisted Tree. Not super original but you can see it above the forrest.

I worked on this painting-on-paper last Spring, but put it aside because I didn't feel it was working. Painting on canvas made me realize the missing element was contrast. So I added dark lines between the blue swirls and the piece came together. 

One more pass on the grass and leaves—once the current layer dries—and I'll call this done.
