From time to time I like to paint on birch panel, leaving a portion of the woodgrain showing.
I enjoy painting the iconic windswept white pine trees that stand proudly against the relentless west winds. But, these trees are totally committed to standing upright, often bent and twisted from the fierce winds. They grow out of mere cracks in the rocks, defiant and proud. I title most of my tree collection with titles that suggest their personality traits. Some past titles are: Steadfast, Diva, Gentle Soul, Warrior, Self Assured, Older but Wiser.
If you love these trees as much as I do, you can have a tree that never grows old in your own home or cottage.
My commercial gallery is located on the Main Street of Midland, where you can view my artwork 5 days a week. Open 11:00-4:00 Tuesday-Saturday. Would love for you to visit. Most likely you will catch me painting!
Thanks for looking!
P.S. This painting will be shown at the in-person show at the Ojibway Club, Point Au Baril. Aug. 3-7.
