"TREES" They are always a challenge to paint. I feel like they stay just one step ahead of me, taunting as I stand hunched over my palette of colors preparing my mind and seeing how close I can get this time to mastering their elegance and grace as they stand firmly bound to their mother..."Earth"
This is a 6x6 oil on Birch panel mounted on a varnished wooden box: (Sold)

Hey Ger,
It was good to see you and your wife at the reception. Sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with your wife this time. Please tell her I said hello.
Are these birch or aspen? Birch trees are one of my favorite trees - really difficult to paint but incredibly beautiful. You did them justice - Nice work. I'll have to add this one to my wish list. It reminds me of Minnesota.
Take care, Cyndy
