Here is “Sunshine Wishes.” 30″ x 40″.
This large-scale canvas is filled by a gloriously blinding rainbow sunburst shining through the crowns of tall trees.
The acrylic painting is full of beautiful details, and you will notice something new every time you look at it.
The sunlight is so bright that its light overtakes our view of the trees directly in its path, the sun’s rays bursting towards us.
On the right, the sunbeams are dominated by magenta tones. On the left, a bright orange-red. Hints of gold and turquoise help create rainbows in the rays of sunlight.
Blue orbs of light glimmer in the foreground, adding to the lens flare effect.
Sunlight shines through the negative shapes created by the criss-crossing branches and masses of foliage in the treetops.
Every inch of the painting is filled with the contrast between light and shadow, shown in a full spectrum of bright colors.
This otherworldly forest filled by a giant sun is a nature fantasy brought indoors.
It is called “Sunshine Wishes” because of the wistful feeling it brings to the viewer. You can’t help but want to be there, soaking up the warm sunlight as you stand surrounded by magnificent trees.
