Moment of Sun by Elizabeth Bravo

30″ × 40″ Acrylic on 2" deep canvas
Original for sale, for information contact me via b-mail.
This painting was inspired by the lake that we visit in Northern California.
Lake Almanor. The trees are so thick and there are layers and layers. This was reflected in how much I needed to work to build up the layers in a way that felt right. I would love to work on more paintings like this and get a better feel for these beatiful trees, but for now I enjoyed finding a way to show the beautiful pines as they caught a Moment of Sun.
Thank you for viewing my work!!

Traditional, Digital & Photographic Artist
I am inspired by everything in life.
Nature, landscape, city life and more.
Over 25 years as a flight attendant has let me see life from every angle. On the road my camera and Mac are my constant companions. At home, it’s hard to find me with out a paint brush in hand.
No matter what, as long as I am creating I am content.
Thanks for viewing my work!!
