On the fourth Friday of each month I have a class at the Upstairs Gallery in Arlington, Texas and we paint with acrylic paints on canvas. This last Friday we painted a landscape with golden aspen trees. Although we painted the same subject matter each person in the class adds their individual touches to each of their paintings. It was a fun day and we all enjoyed the results.

Here are pictures of each painting produced.

Cathy painted her trees more green as they are in the summer. You can feel the breeze stirring the leaves.

Claire's painting shows the detail of the trunks of the trees and the foliage turning to a warmer golden color in the fall.

Marilyn's painting shows the light filtering through the trees with the glow of fall and a crisp chill in the air.

Joan's trees have the feel of a quiet and peaceful autumn eve with the aspen leaves shimmering in the light at the end of the day.

Ellie's trees are vibrant and colorful with lots of magenta and yellow foliage painted with spontaneity and energy.

Sally's painting looks like a French impressionist's rendition of trees with lots of blues and purples with bold brush strokes dancing on the canvas.

Everyone did such an outstanding job, I wanted to spotlight them and show off their hard work.
Friday was a fun day of painting and camaraderie between artists and friends.

Come back soon to see what is happening in painting class or see what is being painted on the canvas or a wall!
