Golden Larches

Acrylic 36 x 24 inches.
I started this painting months ago and put it aside 'cause it wasn't working...and again, I didn't know what was wrong or how to fix it...I just didn't like it. I brought it back out today and decided just to play. I had no reference because I strayed so far from the original photo by adding, moving and taking away rocks trees etc, that it was a totally different painting. I sure had a lot of great texture though! Because I was under no pressure and had no expectations...it came together quite well and I kinda like how it turned out. I'm sure there is someplace in the Rockies that could look like this.
