Paintings of Trees

Treescapes, or landscape paintings of trees have long been a favorite subject for Oregon Artist Talya Johnson. An avid gardener all her life, Tali draws constant inspiration from living things. Her canvas art of trees is rooted in the symbolism and metaphor of nature. There is nothing quite so breathtaking as an Autumn tree in full fall color. The endless supply of historical, anthropological, and mystical context surrounding aspen trees, birch trees, and pine trees provide Tali a conceptual groundwork for her painterly language.

In her work, Talya is often driven to portray that which is difficult to find words to describe. She expresses an emotion, a sensation, a color, or a certain sparkle that many would describe "the soul" of the subject. Talya often renders these intangibles in her canvas tree paintings with the use of a palette knife. Edges of  tree trunk, papery bark, leaf foliage, and sky lose their definition and boundaries in Tali's trademark fine art. The palette knife mingles the oil color pigments on the canvas in great detail. This dreamlike effect conveys a morning mist of movement like wind rustling through the leaves, blossoms floating in the sky, or magical dryads playing their song.

Canvas wall art with trees is especially well suited to convey a sense of peace and security to any home decor. Choose from stately birch tree wall art, to the etherial blossoms from her wisteria tree of life artwork.

The Music of the Trees - by Charles Andrews Heath

How I love to hear the rustle of the leaves upon the trees
When the foliage of summer is a moving in the breeze
When the oak and beech and maple are a tuning up the air
As they hear the quaking aspen sending signals everywhere.
The deciduous forest people are a music making band
With their symphonies so simple that a child can understand
For there's meaning in their rhythm and a pleasure 'mong the trees
When the wind is blowing through them and a stirring all the leaves.
There's an overture in whispers which is soothing to the ear
Then a chorus full of comfort just a chasing out your fear
As the louder it is sounding and the louder yet again
Till at last are joys abounding when it falls in sweet refrain.
Yes, it brings you heaps of solace when the wind is blowing soft
In a lullaby of nature which will bear you way aloft
Till you leave this world of trouble with its fretting and its care
As you listen to the rustle of the leaves a playing there.
O, I love to stop and hearken to the music of the trees
As the wind is soughing through them or a playing with the leaves
There's a harmony that holds you in the noises of the wood
Where I never tire of listening for it does a fellow good.
