New: “Beech”

I grew up on the campus of a small private school in Massachusetts. The grounds were beautiful…a small apple orchard, expansive lawns and meadows, and most prominent were the many huge, deep red Beech trees that had been planted over a hundred years before. I climbed many of these trees, built tree forts in a few, and fell out of more than one. They’ve maintained a fond place in my memory, as have many aspects of that campus. This piece, based on a scene far from that campus, features a reference to the memory of one of those stately trees. “Beech” 40 x 30, oil on canvas.
