This piece is a diptych, meaning it is made up of two separate panels. Each panel measures 45" x 35".

This artwork is from my SPLINTERED WISDOM series. These pieces are made of paper mounted on wood panels and then painted with pure watercolors. The rich texture of the trees is created with collaged bits of images of bark and litter, as a gentle reminder that if we do not stop trashing the planet, trees will not grow from our garbage.

Getting to Know Linda

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.
