Under The Trees.........

I was really inspired to paint "Under The Trees" after our trip to Mohonk a few months ago. There are so many gorgeous sitting areas there, nestled under trees, by the lake and in the woods, that I really wanted to paint one of them.

I wanted it to be a contemporary painting though.....maybe a bit whimsical at the same time. The circles are growing up from the ground and between the tree roots.

They are also growing from the tree branches in varying colors of blue and purple. The black trees and bench are set against a colorful background that reminds me of a rainbow.

Painted on gallery canvas that is 1 1/2" deep, "Under The Trees" measures 11" x 14". I Hope you've enjoyed my contemporary take on an outdoor scene. Available through my ETSY shop:

Hi Ruth,

Your new contemporary tree-scape is lovely. I can see lots of inspiration in your work from your trip. Your new pendant designs are so fresh and pretty. They will be great Christmas gifts.
Have a wonderful week.

Hi Ruth ...I love the new 'contemporary' painting. Very fanciful ...I can just close my eyes and envision myself sitting upon the bench!
