FiorellaMaria_AraguaneyEnFlor (002)

FiorellaMaria_PinkAndYellow149 (002)

Gring Susan-Backlit Birches (002)

Living in northern Minnesota, birch trees were everywhere. They were absolutely stunning whether in spring with their new green leaves emerging or in fall when they wore their yellow jackets. But it was in winter when the stark bare branched trees were backlit by the setting sun that was absolutely an awesome sight. Backlit Birches Acrylic 12 x 12 $175 Susan Gring

Harleman, Melinda-Birch Tree

I was inspired by the peeling bark on one of the birch trees next to our neighborhood pond. It was certainly a challenge to paint it! Birch Tree on the Pond Oil 24 x 24 $625 Melinda Harleman

Heenan, Michael-The Trees

Here I convey a place of imagination--starkly contrasting a cool, completely blank vista with a warm, dense line of trees. The virtually colorless vista is eternal; the intensely colored foliage is seasonal. All in all, a life metaphor. The Trees Acrylics 36 x 24 $695 Michael Heenan

Grand tree watching over the golden fields. Over See-er Oil 18 x 24 $800 Lorrie Herman

Hindle, Stuart-Beeches Just Turning

Hindle, Sturat-Birches and Pines (002)

I lived in the Czech Republic and hiked many a trail in the autumn. The leaves of the birch trees were unusually bright with a range of colors against the dark pines.

Hindle, Sturat-Birches in Spring sml (002)

On this cool morning in the woods, the sun had not yet burned off the mist. It made for an atmospheric hike amongst the birch trees and the young pines. I used a cool palette to capture the dewy morning. Birches in Spring Oil on Canvas 24 x 18 $1295 Stuart Hindle

Hopkins, Laura-Storm

As I painted this scene from my imagination, I tried to capture the feeling and the mood of a stormy September afternoon. I paint in the tradition of the American Tonalists of the 19th century whose contemplative and poetic works were thought to provide solace and respite from a war torn and increasingly industrial world. It is my hope that viewers of my work find a place where they can rest a moment. September Storm Oil on Canvas 16 x 20 $950 Laura Hopkins

Hopkins, Laura-Winds of Autumn

This painting is a result of my ongoing studies of the dramatic and expressive work of the historic American Tonalist Franklin De Haven. Winds of Autumn Oil on Linen Wrapped Panel 8 x 10 $425 Laura Hopkins

Hopkins, Laura-A Yound Tree in Early Autumn

This painting is from imagination and memory, as most of my paintings are. I think that each viewer has a unique experience with a painting entirely separate from my experience painting it. As you look at the painting from across the room and at the various passages from a closer view, you bring your own memories and experiences to bear on what you take in and what resonates with you. This idea, that a painting can mean different things to different people is what keeps me coming back to the eas

Howsare, Kathleen-In the Grove

Every year I go for a visit to the Virginia Arboretum to see the gorgeous ginkgos. Surrounded by gold, it is always a glorious experience! In the Grove Acrylic 20 x 30 $1950 Kathleen Howsare

Inra, Ligia-Coconut Palm Tree

Years ago, when it was very popular to make a reproduction or Giclee, I thought I would try it with one of my abstract paintings. The result was very disappointing, and I ended up putting it in storage for many years. Something strange happened when I saw it again. All I could see was the palm tree and the coconuts. The entire palm tree was painted using the background to my advantage. Coconut Palm Tree Acrylic on Recycled Giclée 30 x 40 $650 Ligia Inra

Javier, Lizzy-Delightful

Jenkins, Doris_CherryBlossomTime_Oil (002)

I was driving some back roads in Aldie and took this picture. I wanted to capture this beautiful cherry tree that caught my eye. I loved the contrast of the fence and shadows in the photo and hope I captured them in the painting. Cherry Blossom Time Oil on Canvas 10 x 8 $400 Doris Jenkins

Kopec, Laurie-Sycamore

This painting was done from the many sycamores surrounding my home. I love the white bark in the sun and used pallet knife and large brushes with fresh color to attain the light on the trees. Sycamore Oil 14 x 11 $450 Laurie Kopec

Kopec, Laurie-The Sun on the Hill

During a walk, I saw this scene and it inspired the beautiful halo on the sun with the shadow from the trees in the late morning. I used pallet knife and large brushes to get thick paint for pure color. The Sun on the Hill Oil 24 x 30 $750 Laurie Kopec

Lehman, Margo-Way Opens II

This image of being alone in the woods at night, but not being afraid is a childhood memory that revisits me often. It shows up in my work in many ways and many mediums. No matter how dark, the light is always there for us to follow. Way Opens II Oil 40 x 30 $3,000 Margo Lehman

Lehman, Margo-Finding the Way (002)

Working this familiar image in a new medium was both challenging and exhilarating, juxtaposing the cool blue light of night in the woods with the warmth and comfort of wool. While color blending in wool can be difficult, the sculptural capacity extends the creative capacity of the medium. Finding the Way Felted Wool 36 x 28 $3,600 Margo Lehman

Lehman, Margo-Moonlight in the Beech Forest (002)

Painting something so ancient and enormous in miniature requires not just the skill to wield tiny paint brushes, but also a sense of intimacy with your subject. I wandered many local forested areas in search of Beech trees with their intricate root structure and smooth bark. They're painted here without the ubiquitous graffiti one usually finds carved in their bark. Moonlight in the Beech Forest Oil 4 x 3 $250 Margo Lehman

Mann, Amy-Shady Lane at Blandy (002)

A warm day, a shady spot. This beautiful tree-lined gravel drive was the perfect place to paint. I like looking out into bright sunshine from deep shade, and seeing the shadow patterns made by the trees. Shady Lane at Blandly Oil 9 x 12 $350 Amy Mann

Mann, Amy-Pines by the Sea (002)

On a brisk, breezy day in early November 2022 on the coast of Maine, sheltered beside a house, I painted these dancing pine trees beside the sea. I can't think of a more pleasant place to paint! Pines by the Sea Oil 14 x18 $725 Amy Mann

Newell, Renee-GrowOldWithMe (002)

I stumbled upon this grouping of trees at a park in Arlington, VA where my children play. I was inspired by both their interconnectedness and the tension between the trunks. I imagined them as an old couple, rooted together yet constantly bickering. Grow Old with Me Oil 36 x 36 $2,000 Renee Newell


Maine Survivor Oil 16 x 12 $350 Renee Newell

Nicely, Elise-The Edge of Spring

Parent, Terri-Klimt's Muse

This wonderful composition of trees on a cloudy day in winter was without color. A blank canvas waiting for color. I love the colors of Klimt which provided the inspiration for this artistic rendering. Klimt's Muse Digital Photography 8 x 10 $165 Terri Parent

Parent, Terri-Golden Hour

Trees are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. This image was captured on a foggy morning as the sun struggled to break through the fog. The artistic enhancements are my imaginings of the trees in the morning golden hour. Golden Hour Digital Photography 10 x 8 $165 Terri Parent

Petrecca, Regina-Bonsai

The Chinese began the art form of Bonsai over 2,000 years ago, creating miniature landscapes.

Pistochini, Deidre-Crazy for Coconuts

Based on a coconut tree that was on our property in Hawaii, I painted this on Yupo paper.

Crazy for Coconuts Acrylic with Watercolor 11 x 11 $300 Deidre Pistochini

Pistochini, Deidre-Mango Bounty

This painting was inspired by a beautiful mango tree that grew on our property in Hawaii. It always provided a bountiful amount of fruit and the afternoon light would always hit the fruit just right. This painting was done on Yupo paper utilizing an initial acrylic pour. I lifted the whites out with alcohol; saved the acrylic mid-tones and used watercolor to achieve the dark tones. Mango Bounty Acrylic pour with Watercolor 18 x 16 $850 Deidre Pistochini

Stevens, Libby-Down by the River[98]

Springtime means plein air painting, which for me always includes a session painting the bluebells. This was done on the banks of the Shenandoah River in Brunswick, Md. I love how the trees meet the water’s edge with bluebells. Down by the River Oil 8 x 10 $500 Libby Stevens

Stevens, Libby Into the Grove

I enjoyed setting up my easel in the quiet grove of young saplings just breaking out in spring foliage. Into the Grove Pastel 7 x 9 $250 Libby Stevens

StewartMargaret_NoPaparazzi-HollywoodJuniper_oil_6x8 (002)

StewartMargaret_DiscoHair-pinusstrobus_oil_10x8 (002)

This tree from Blandy Experimental Farm stands tall at the end of the walk at the quarters.

StewartMargaret_Moonrise_oil_8x8 (002)

Owl on a Branch in a Tree Oil 8 x 4 3/4 $375 Dana Lee Thompson

Torruella, Kristyne-Day Stars

I have always loved the contrast of the yellows and reds of fall leaves against the azure blue sky. When I started to paint this, I couldn't help myself. I had to make those colors sparkle somehow! Once I did it, they looked like stars to me. I realized I loved looking up at the leaves in the sky just as much as looking up at the stars at night. And thus was born the idea: Day Stars. Day Stars Oil 11 x 14 $299 Kristyne Torruella

Turner, Kathryn-why can't we be friends

Wassell, Elizabeth-Helping Friends

Helping Friends is an ode to the fires in California and the crews that protected the trees. Watching the devastation, knowing the utter destruction, I tried to put my hope onto canvas. Human, tree, fire, and earth are connected. And the cycle repeats. I was amazed that the flimsy space blanket (?) in my car glovebox was being wrapped around massive trees to protect them from the heat! How helpless we are.
