This painting was inspired by a photo my friend took on Wildwood Trail, a local Portland hiking spot.

This “wild wood” is full of movement, the details of many weaving twigs and branches, light and color.

At 30″ x 40″, painted on a wood panel, this piece of art can set the mood of a whole room.

Crimson and gold leaves hang in the foreground, illuminated by the bright sunlight, signifying the beginning of fall.

Some of the branches are draped with sun-lit moss. The sun, low in the sky, bursts around the edge of the large tree trunk in the foreground.

Hints of a dense forest are shown in soft colors in the background. The trees in the distance are softened and partially washed out by a combination of overpowering sunlight and thick mist in the air.

Some of the foliage in the distance is muted green and blue, with the more sun-drenched trees glowing in pink, lavender and gold. Countless thin branches weave together overhead.

The beautiful trees fill the whole painting with life.
