My work for this week is Elder Birch. It is of an old Birch tree I found while hiking on a northern Wisconsin trail. I am fascinated by the play of shadows on the white marred bark of the tree. The original is on a 24″ x 18 canvas sprayed with a UV protectant varnish. I will be showing it this summer at the Elgin, Palatine, and Barrington IL art fairs.
