Title:    “Birch Trees I”

 

Description:    I wish I could photograph the way this painting changes with the light. As the sun disappears, the white of the birch trees glows while the delicate path and mist fade away.

 

The background on this canvas had been painted months before, and then it was left as I couldn’t decide what to do with it. There was a beckoning mystery in the purple haze and the disappearing path. Should I leave the painting as it was, with the background becoming the focus? After I finished “Fragile Strength“, I had the same violet paint on my palette and inspiration struck – the birch trees appeared from the mist!

 

This painting slips into the realm of semi abstract with the violet forest mist and the birch tree details picking up the same Australian Red Violet, an incredible colour with fascinating depth.

 

I hope you are drawn into this painting the way I am.
