This piece is (temporarily) hanging in my living room… and it’s wonderful!
Why so wonderful?
Because it’s so calming and peaceful to look at.
(Previously, we had a selection of bright, colourful birch tree paintings which were lively and energetic however they have since sold and now…)
This piece has turned my living room into a tranquil haven (with the help of a few new throw pillows and some strategically placed candles). It’s now a place where I can sit in peace with a glass of wine and a good book or engage in stimulating conversation with friends (no loud tv’s, no lego to step on, no distractions!).
I can’t help but slow down to enjoy it every time I enter the room.
It’s transformed the space completely.
As much as I love using vibrant, bold colours in my artwork, I absolutely love the soft, subtle colour palette in this painting.
The warm shades of green with a hint a turquoise is both calming and serene.
I’ve also mixed in a bit of gold mica pigment into some of the leafy colours to add a soft shimmer. It’s a very subtle effect but I think it adds to the mysterious quality of the forest.
The light catches on the textured surface and creates a very realistic three dimensional effect.
Life is busy these days and it’s becoming even more important to carve out time and space to relax and enjoy the quiet moments. I find that when I do, I feel re-energized and inspired.
