These don't have Spanish moss, but I was taken by their entwined limbs, like they are giving each other a hug and will be best friends forever.
I painted this with a palette knife and I used a technique I call "color weaving". It gives me lots of texture and I can get really subtle color changes. I have a nice wide molding in a dark wood tone that I will use to frame this one. I think it will make it pop off the wall!
I hope to get many photos of fall color in the mountains next month....it's my favorite time of the year!

(I usually have hung it sideways with the words "evolved thinking" vertical instead of horizontal.)
With the above photo's image burnt into my mind and the inspiration of the last verse of Holme's poem, The Chambered Nautilus, which I post below, I decided I must try to create a nautilus of my own. I must try to capture the feel of the movement from chamber to chamber and the final hallelujah the last line.
Here's my effort! I have made changes from my original plan. I did not print the words of the poem on the ridges of the shell. I did not make the ridges black. I was not able to make each section a wholly independent work of art. But I am very satisfied with the result. I do believe there is a hallelujah in there somewhere!
