Birch Buddies

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 9x12

This is the last of the small tree studies that I demonstrated for my student artists. The way the larger birch leans drunkenly towards the other gave me the idea for the title. The birch tree outside my studio window is just beginning to change color. $300.00

Oak Tree Trio

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 12x9

Another tree study, but a gnarly oak tree was my subject this time. Although the leaves aren't turning yet in Wisconsin, autumn has arrived. $300.00

Wilderness Skyscrapers

Original Painting 8x10

(Click on Painting to enlarge)

This small study was also used for a class demonstration of tree painting for one of my classes at River Birch Gallery. I like the way they are partially silhouetted by the setting sun. $150.00

Towers in the Snow

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 12x9

This is first in a series of "tree" studies that were used for demonstration and teaching purposes for my students at River Birch Gallery. It reminded me of church spires. SOLD Prints of this painting are still available.
