"Winter Forest" Oil Painting by Marcia BrandweinRegular price $ 950.00
Both of my parents artists, I am so lucky to have grown up surrounded by art and encouraged to follow creative pursuits. I remember the smell of the oil paints and turpentine wafting from the studio in our Long Island home. These works by my mother, Marcia Brandwein, are some of my favorites she has recently painted.
Inspired by the the beautiful birch trees at her home in Maine. I particularly love her choice of color to represent the trees and the shadows. The combination of lilacs, brown and green is comforting. And I find the bold paint strokes of the snow to be relaxing.
The shadows of snow in the forest is the most exciting depending upon the time of day. This scene was done on a cloudy day in the afternoon.
