Abstract Tree Paintings

I've just finished (finally!) three paintings of trees.  I painted a Red Japanese Maple Tree a few months ago, and I've been searching out new subjects ever since.

"Savannah" 30" x 40"

"Serenity" 36" x 36"

"Burgundy Trio" 3' x 4'

All three have a lot of layers of color and texture.  I spent a lot of time (and paint!) searching for the perfect color relationships.  The white tree has some gold foil peaking through at the bottom - it captures the light beautifully!

I'm hoping that these will be selected for a group exhibition at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens this summer.  If not, they'll be shown at a local flower shop near my studio.  (Prints will be available soon!)
