Tree Shopping

This painting is primarily palette knife but with a brushed foreground.  It measures 8 x 8" and is 1-1/2" thick on board.  Inspired by a Christmas Tree Farm on Maui, it is painted from memory, rather than one of my photos.  Most people are surprised to know there are Christmas tree farms in Hawaii but on the slopes of Haleakala, with the higher elevation, the temperature can be much lower than Southern Ca. where I now live.  It was wonderful to prowl around the farm and choose your tree rather than visit the corner, paved lot like I do now!


  1. This one really appeals to me Janet. It's beautiful in it's simplicity!

  2. Beautiful Janet! I didn't know you could buy a Christmas tree on Maui! I love your choice of colors!

  3. Very nice. Love the simplicity of it, and the way you applied the paint.
