Trees #2 Armando's Challenge

Sharon De Vore Gonzalez's Facebook profile Armando Salas challenged me to paint “Trees” in abstract. Again I want to thank Rob Cobb for the use of his beautiful photo. I tried to keep the integrity of Rob’s photo, make “Trees” abstract and have fun painting it. I think that I have achieved those 3 things; I certainly know that I did the last one. Thank you, Armando, for creating this challenge for me and thus, this painting, that I call“Trees #2". Besides regular acrylics, I also used pearlized and metallic acrylics. So in some parts from different angles & lighting you see different sheens & shines. I hope that you all enjoy!
