SQUAM STILLWATER: Five Pines { 7 }

What would happen if one combined the Japanese like elegance of native
pines with 15th Century Florentine musical ratios by way of the Greek
Philosopher Pythagoras ? Let's find out.

Squam Stillwater: Five Pines ( in-progress)
James Aponovich
oil on canvas, 24" x 18"

The painting has stood in a corner of the studio for the greater
part of a month. I had to attend to a Sunflower painting. Now it's
back on the easel so I repainted the sky ( 8 colors & values) and
the water ( 10 colors and values).

The sky is dry so I begin the
arduous process of painting the pines, plus the distant
mountain and hills. Did I mention I hate the color green?
