Tree Grove

24 09 2010

While in Pittsburgh I watched a bunch of DIY network. And they redecorate constantly. Basically all day long, you can watch messy, boring rooms get turned into something spectacular, elegant and pulled together. One of the shows had the host paint this brown toned painting with trees in it. It really resonated with me and I wanted to make something similar. My take on this:

I gave the painting to my sister as a birthday present. She has it sitting on a ledge in her bedroom so she can see it every day when she wakes up. I have to say this location makes me happy. I love the color and the happiness of the trees, and the fact that she keeps it in such a prominent place makes me think that she likes looking at it as well.

It’s the same kelly green color that I used for the Barcelona Chair, but this time it is shaded rather than put on at full potency.
