The Tree | 50"x50" | oil on canvas
I thought I'd post a commission that I just completed. I don't paint a lot of large landscapes, but when asked to paint this tree I decided to take it on. I've had it on and off of my easel for months and finally delivered it to the client last week.
This is a huge cottonwood tree that is in their backyard and it is quite an impressive specimen. They were quite specific that they wanted the tree to be the lone focus, and I think that gives the finished painting a peaceful meditative quality. It is going in a great location directly above the fireplace in their living room.
