This oil painting is of a grouping of Oak trees with the morning sun hitting the branches in various places. I kept the colors uninhibited and really wanted to exaggerate the warm against the cool using turquoise and deep peach pigments.
I have painted the sides for a frameless option and have wired the back.
I signed and dated the back as well.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
