What Lies Beyond

What Lies Beyond, 24 x 24, acrylic on deep cradle panel

I painted this one a couple of weeks ago for a theme show entitled "Magical Mystery Tours." If I am working on a series, I don't like to jump away to indulge a thematic whim, but I've learned that one can usually find a way to work within a theme by keeping an open mind and not becoming too literal in interpretation. Literal is often so banal, anyway.

For me, the painting sets a certain mood as did Standing Stillness - and the next in the series which I will try to get posted later today.

When I saw the thumbnail, I was thinking mystical. This is beautiful Patrice. I love looking at your closeup and seeing all the different colors you've combined into the trees.
