"Sky High" is my newest original tree piece that is a full 4' tall! Only a piece this tall can do justice to the lovely and majestic trees in their full glory.
This piece of art offers you a lovely view of the forest from below. These gorgeous birch/aspen trees and brightly colored leaves were created with the finest acrylic paints and mediums, using mostly palette knives, non-traditional implements, and some brush work.
After sketching the image and creating the design, I paint with a palette knife in thick layers that ultimately catch light and shadows as well as contributing unusual color elements to the image as the next layer is applied. This technique not only creates a three-dimensional quality to the original as well as prints, but it also adds a richness and dramatic effect.
