"Renewal" original oil painting
From the mini landscape series. Based on a visit in mid-March to a hidden ATV trail system that stretches from Buxton to Fryeburg. Bright green moss and spring vegetation pushing through decaying leaves along the trail. Goldfinches in swarms chattering in the hemlock branches above, announcing their arrival from a long migration.
Oil and acrylic paint on 5x6" Bristol board. Finished with non-yellowing archival varnish.
