MY INSPIRATIONS FOR THESE FOREST and TREE PAINTINGS
Trees and forests can be magical, beautiful and mysterious. For the last 3 years, they have captivated me and inspired hundreds of paintings.
In my work, you’ll see realistically painted trees juxtaposed against abstract blocks of color representing the sky, leaves, fields and shadows.
Birch, aspen, maple, oak, redwood, pine – each species is fascinating in its own way.
Seasons bring changes in colors, lighting and shadows. Time of day matters too. When combined with sunlit fields and set against valleys, mountains and skies, the possibilities are endless.
