This painting was inspired by the beauty and seemingly magical quality of this surreal-looking red tree.  This place could be real or imagined, but either way it appears to hold fantastical powers and energy.  The palette and energy of the painting reflect this sentiment.  The painting is gallery wrapped, varnished, and ready to hang.  The image continues around the sides.  You may recognize the title from Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree.

Getting to Know Nava

Nava’s romantic and heavily textured impressionist paintings radiate delicate, feminine charm. She focuses on creating depth and dimension with the layers of impasto she applies with a palette knife. This textural element blurs and abstracts the composition, conveying a notion of gentle, bleary-eyed beauty. Nava preps each canvas with a gold wash to make her paintings glimmer with luscious warmth. She works from her home in Florida, amid the chaos of children and canines, and finds peace painting in silence.
