A simple tree in full leaf, showing its large complex root system. This entire painting is light and airy, just what we look for in a summer tree, cooling to the eye. The Summer Tree has cut out leaves in metallic silver as well as metallic gold leaves. This is a tree of wisdom. Like “apples of gold in settings of silver”, it invites us to simplify, to settle into our roots, and, in solitude, find the wisdom we need.
Can be hung but is just as effective sitting on a shelf or table, which makes it a versatile gift- either to yourself or a friend. It’s a lovely hostess gift if you’re going to spending time visiting family or friends this summer.
6 x 6 x 1.5” canvas; acrylic paint, metallic acrylic paint, ink and paper; sealed and ready to hang.
