Birch trees

Birch trees fascinate me. They are different. Strong, white, wonderful. 


Robert Frost once wrote a beautiful poem about them. I can relate to that. To climb toward heaven...to visit my loved ones and to be set down on earth again.

I so enjoyed painting my own birch trees today, joyful hours passed by. I don't think while I paint. I only enjoy: the contrasting colours, the use of my palette knife, the quiet surroundings.


Thankyou God for the talent You gave me. May this painting bring joy to someone else. Acrylic paint on blocked canvas. The size:  52 x 90 cm.


"And the wind said:
May you be as strong as the oak, 
yet flexible as the birch, 
may you stand as tall as the redwood, 
live gracefully as the willow
and may you always bear fruit, all your days 
on this earth."
