"ALL MY DAYS" Self portrait as an autumn tree in Oil

Its Done!  I have spent the last 2 days working on something in my head
and I can finally say ...Its done.

I wanted to paint (and not furniture). It seems I go through phases. I can paint tons and tons of
furniture and all of the sudden..I need to paint...A PAINTING.
Well on Tuesday the heart wanted what the heart wanted and the
brain and the hands obliged.
As you know last week I went for a run along the Michigan Lake shore
(You can see the autumn inspiration HERE)
to get my fill of all the autumn foliage. I knew it was gonna bug me to put it on canvas
and I was right.

So early Tuesday A.M. I started mixing up my oil paints and started laying down my paint.

As I was painting I realized it was a self portrait. This is one of my favorite parts of painting.
I can have NO IDEA how things are going to end up. I just let my brain be free and it takes me where I am meant to be.  (hey I'm a poet and I didn't know it..LOL)

 If you want you can hear the song that inspired me while I was painting.
Sometimes is just a lyric or something that will make my brain click on. In this case I actually heard the song right as I was finishing and from that point on had my Title for my painting.

As you can see from this photo..I had lots of inspiration surrounding me these last couple of days.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek inside my brain. As I get up early in the morning on these blustery autumn days and stretch out my limbs, it makes me smile to know to picture myself as my autumn tree.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
