Happy 2019! I feel like I have just come out of my holiday hubbub/hibernation. I actually started this image about a week before Christmas. But, life being what it is, didn’t find the time or energy to put the finishing touches on until today.
Following in the (branchy) footsteps of my older piece Celestial Gift, this is another painting where the trees have come alive. In a mix of peaceful solemnity and eeriness, they are parading through the winter forest with candles, unseen by mankind until a small girl on pony-back just happens to stumble across them.
Enjoy! As always, if you love this image you can buy a print at my ETSY SHOP.
Bonus: at the very bottom of this post are a couple photos from the real-life snowstorm that happened during the painting of this piece.
