Part of artist Linda Klein's signature series of environmentally focused, mixed media forest scenes. Linda says this artwork was inspired by nature's ability to restore hope and remind us that the only constant is that things will constantly change. "We must learn to adapt." This artwork maintains Linda's quest to recycle materials. The rich texture of the trees is created with collaged litter she picks up off scenic highways, as a gentle reminder that we must care for the nature around us.
This piece is a diptych, meaning it is made up of two separate panels. Each panel measures 40" x 30".

Linda Klein is an eco-conscious mixed media artist from California. She applies her passion for the environment to her work. “Many of my collaged tree pieces are created with bits of litter that I clean up off of scenic highways,” Linda says. “Each painting contributes to cleaning up our planet and turns ‘trash into trees.’” By repurposing litter as collage material, Linda dutifully reminds her viewers that recycling is key to a thriving future. The artist lives in Marin County, where she feels grateful to have inherited her mother-in-law’s large art studio that is always filled with light.
