Maine Birch Forest

I originally painted this in 2007 for my husband, whose favorite tree is the birch tree and who fell in love with the birch forests when we took our trip to Maine. I revamped it in 2011 with darker shadows in the background to make the trunks pop off the canvas, having learned that you shouldn't always paint a photograph as it is, but sometimes have to take certain liberties and apply artistic license to your references to achieve depth and conviction.
