If you've seen some of the handmade items in my shop, you'll notice that I have a love of all things Birch! There's something about those long, skinny white trees that is so calming. I love how the knots in the bark look like eyes... watching us as we roam through the forest :)
I don't often paint this large, but when I took the reference photos for this piece, I knew right away that it should be painted BIG! The bold, contemporary design look even better with the frame. It looks amazing on any wall!

It's been a while since I've painted a floral, and when I saw these beauties flowing in the wind one day, I thought they'd be perfect for my painting. I love how they seem to be reaching up towards the sun!
