Here is “Stand Together.”
Stand Together depicts twin trees growing from the same spot in the ground.
Although the painting is filled with bright light, the photo that inspired it was actually taken at night, the source of light coming from a street lamp shining through the fog.
In the painting, however, the time of day is not clear. What stands out most is the bold form of the two tall trees, growing together side-by-side.
The painting is full of movement and loose, abstract forms, the artist’s hand evident through the bold brush strokes.
Up close, you’ll notice the thick textures in the paint.
Beads of bright white light burst through the thin gap between the towering twin trees, creating a dramatic effect.
Whenever I see trees growing so close together like this, I can’t help but anthropomorphize them, carried away by the lovely symbolism of the image.
The trees represent unity and resilience, standing together and supporting each other through thick and thin.
This painting can be displayed on its own, or as a complement to “Mt. Tabor Morning.”
This art evokes a feeling of tranquility, encouraging viewers to appreciate the natural world and to find inspiration and hope in its beauty.
