Dreaming of spring

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic on 14 x 18 inch canvas 
This painting started with drips of diluted fluid acrylics on a canvas prepped with clear gesso. I dropped the paint after brushing water on the canvas and let the color flow. After letting it dry overnight I drew the flowers and branches with a black pastel pencil, then started to paint and glaze. I used some micaceous iron oxide paint to darken the periphery.
