Eucalyptus Trees

8x10 reproduction of an

original oil painting

Printed with archival inks on

100% Cotton Rag Photo Paper


I already mentioned how much trees fascinate me when I introduced LATE AFTERNOON SHADOWS, noting that this likely stems from the many similarities between trees and architectural elements. Eucalyptus Trees is another favorite tree-themed painting. I painted it as a study for a considerably larger version, but have always preferred this one. I think the spontaneity of a preparatory piece often has an appeal that’s hard to recreate . . . and sometimes working at a small scale is preferable to a large one (though I do tend to feel more at home on large canvases).

Eucalyptus Trees was inspired by a pair of skyscraper-tall (this is a bit of an exaggeration) eucalyptus trees at the end of the street I used to live on in Pasadena, California. Whenever I chased my daughter to the corner as she flew off on her Big Wheel, I would look up at these trees reaching toward the sky, marveling at the impressive network of branches radiating from the main trunks. (And what a pungent, nostalgic scent permeated that corner—I recognized it as the same one used to clean our home in Brazil many years ago.)

My original 10 x 12-inch oil painting is reproduced on 100% cotton, museum-grade paper. The image itself measures 8 x 10 inches (20.1 x 25.4 cm) and is surrounded by a narrow white border. The print is titled & signed on the back, and packaged in a clear archival sleeve. (Click on either image for a larger view; please note that the images you see on the site are saved at a low resolution for the web, but they are of course printed at high resolution.)
