This piece was inspired by a walk through the aspens in the fall, with the light coming down through the bright leaves, creating an ethereal feeling. The way aspens grow, in colonies, reminds me of the saying, "Can't see the forest for the trees." In this case, the details and the whole are one and the same.
The artwork is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Artist Crystal DiPietro paints majestic sceneries inspired by her personal trips to beautiful untamed places. She creates landscapes as rugged and dramatic—setting her style apart from the usual soft and delicate perspectives of the genre. Crystal pursued art school in Washington, D.C., where she got to go behind the scenes in major galleries and explore hiking, a huge source of her work inspiration. She composes her work with bold natural views in unique angles, vibrant colors, and loose brushstrokes. With her own photography used as a reference, Crystal expresses the details in her paintings slowly, in layers, the same way a photograph develops. “I intend to show a subtle beauty where the viewer may never have thought to look,” says Crystal. Her work hovers between capturing a brief dream and a contemplative impression of the scene. She achieves this by allowing viewers to come away with new respect and appreciation for the worlds around them.
