8"x 10" oil

This tree had so much character when
I happened upon it just recently in
deep backwoods. Just had to try and
do it justice, and make art of it.

Larry, The light and the feeling in this painting is truly great. You really captured a sense of place for me in this painting.

...the tree struck me immediately walking thru this terrain.

Great painting Larry, for me this invokes memories of that crisp cool air, sun and quiet -I can't wait for the weekend! I take it rifle season is over around your parts?

Larry Seiler said...

oh yeah...
my son and I hunt together often...(gun and bow)...and we had a very good year. Bow season now till early January...for the hearty! 8^)

Amazing what country you come across while out... and I intend to explore this area/theme of this tree as I imagine a nice buck somewhere in this...

Splendid job, how you get so much distance between the tree and background, just awesome.

Larry Seiler said...

thanks Rene...
it was a fun piece to paint...

This is so beautiful with the sunlight sparkling on the snow intermingled with shadows.

Larry Seiler said...

thanks much Celeste...
nice to know a piece has an appeal to a number of eyes, and should register with the artist that made it. Appreciated

The gesture and stance of this tree is so interesting and intriguing. I am glad that you found it beautiful and painted it so others could see it!
