The tree of hope by Buble The tree of hope by Buble
I did this painting for a lady who lost her son to suicide... she was visiting a brother of hers in Canada, and he'd lost a daughter in a car accident..

This lady and her brother were walking and talking and sharing their grief.. When they came upon this tree that was growing out of a rock.. She came back to Holland and told her story at a woman’s church meeting how this view had given her courage, and hope to go on, that she said.. ‘‘Even out of something hard can come something beautiful''.....
After the meeting. I volunteered to paint this .. I had no photo.. Just went by her story.... when she received it, she remarked how accurate it was. To the point that even the mountains in the background, for it was so.. And that she had not mentioned in her story to us.... needless to say, she way very happy with the painting.

Oil on canvas 60X 70 cm.

I like the contrast and smooth application of oil. Adds an almost dreamlike quality. Good job!

I really enjoy this, it reminds me of the early work of the surrealists, when the genre was dedicated to the idea of art that is "more than real". Images more beautiful than reality could be.
