Heart of the Forest - Red Tree
I discovered this style of painting from Artist/Teacher Tim Gagnon. This painting shows a dark red tree (symbolizing passion or having a passionate heart) surrounded by a misty forest background with glowing fairies at the base of the trees. I also added a few cattails in the foreground as I've always associated cattails with mystery and magic. I've had people tell me they get an ethereal feeling from this painting. It is made with acrylic paints on a 14x11 gallery wrapped canvas. The painting is currently for sale in my Etsy shop. For more close-up views click here.
