Last Stand

Image description

A fall tree original painting with a defiant display of early autumn color. The palette knife beautifully captures the paper-like bark of each tree trunk with its golden foliage. Blue and yellow colors visually harmonize the energetic scene.

Behind the Canvas

The wooded area around my home is being cleared for new homes. Many of the new homeowners choose to clear cut their properties. Most of this beautiful stand of birch trees and aspen trees was cut down shortly after I painted it. I could almost feel its defiance as it majestically held up its beautiful limbs...for the last time.

If you look closely you may recognize this birch tree and aspen tree forest from a few of Tali’s other landscape tree paintings. namely: 

Welcome Home - An oil painting of the embrace of a birch tree's glittering green foliage

Unexpected Path - A fanciful trip between soft pastel painted tree trunks

Redemption - Celebratory red autumn tree landscape painting rendered in oil paint
