Treeline Dance

Oil painting

25 x 37 inches

Juror's Award: First Place


Juror's note: Trees are full of personality. Each has a distinct shape and way of moving. This painting portrays the dance and rhythm of this group of trees. There is a sense of depth. The light of the distant sky, cool in some places and warm in others, travels so beautifully through the carefully sculpted spaces between branches, leaves, trunks, and horizon.
