Birch trees take me back to my childhood; long walks in the crackling leaves, the smell of a wood fire burning, hot chocolate, and exploring my grandpa's shed... This painting features a scene from amazing South Lake Tahoe, in northern California. The Sierra Nevada mountains are magical all year round, and here they are in the fall with blazing color! My method is 100% palette knife, with thick paint and amazing texture. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.
