Do you notice the solitary gum tree in a paddock as you drive by? Do you visit a creek or river and admire the river red gum gently leaning over the water? As a child of the Western District in Victoria, I have been admiring these trees all my life. It feels like the right time to take on the challenge of capturing these unique beauties, before they are gone. In this large, original painting I want to celebrate the tree as a natural treasure, standing like a sentinel in an otherwise treeless paddock or gracing the river bank. I'm saying to each tree, "I see you, I appreciate you, I love you and you are important". I am also saying it to anyone else who sees themselves in this tree. Like us, each gum tree is unique in its gnarly, wizened, weather beaten beauty. In this painting I have used fluid acrylics, textured brush marks and delicate layers of colour to express the shape and patterns, light and shade, nooks and crannies of the tree. This is juxtaposed against the soft, controlled gradation of pastel colours that give the painting depth and enhances the gravitas of the tree.
This work is 100cm wide x 180cm high x 4cm deep, unframed, ready to hang. The painting continues around each edge of the canvas. If you prefer, you can easily choose a hand crafted frame at checkout. I provide a signed Certificate of Authenticity with each painting. I carefully package each work in bubble wrap and recycled cardboard so that they arrive safely, ready for you to enjoy.
