“Villers Abbey Forest”, acrylic on canvas, 50 x 70 cm/19.7 x 27.6 in., 2020, is part of my Forest Series. The painting is inspired by a tree I came across during a walk through the Villers-la-Ville forest, located in the Wallonia region of Belgium. I was struck by the long curve of the main tree from its stable rooting to the left and the tree behind it that curved more dramatically to the right. The intertwining of the trees and their place atop a slope in the land made for a dramatic scene. The light shining through the tree’s leaves on the right side in contrast to the darker area created by the curve of the main tree on the left side made for a nice contrast. This scene is a personal reminder of my autumnal stroll through this landscape.
The painting comes outfitted with a thin metal wire secured with two eyehook screws for easy hanging. A certificate of authenticity (COA) is included with the purchase of this painting.
