"QUIET STROLL"

Painting trees can be a challenge so I paint many, some tight with detail or some more loose. I explore and I learn how amazing they are.  Sure there is the obvious, shade, privacy even a wooden front porch but way beyond that they are life.  If there are no trees, we are gone, ciao, sayonara, adios and bye bye.  So I paint them and try to give them a place among us and perhaps make people stop to see, to admire and just maybe take a quiet stroll with them. This 6X6 original oil painting is on birch wood that has been mounted to a finished wooded box with no framing required: ( SOLD)

Sweet piece I really like the park like feeling. I miss seeing big trees like these that are so common on the east coast.

Hello my friend, yes you only see parks like that back east.. I do agree.

I like the mystery in this one. How about those giant red woods in CA?
