I've always loved poplar trees.  Where I grew up I'd often go walking with my Dad or on my own as a child, usually with a dog in tow.  There were a number of places where lines of them would appear in the distance.  I always liked how graceful and resolute they looked.  As I write this it's November 2020 and nights are getting darker.  I was often outside as a child as it was just getting dark, a chill in the air. The time of year for firework displays and log fires.  This is what I thought about when I painted this scene, inspired by Gustav Klimt and Van Gogh and redolent of symbolist landscapes. It's a big piece and in a dark frame, well lit, will look nice and striking but also insightful and inspiring, the sky looks as though it could be the universe.  I can see this on the wall in a living room, with a darker colour scheme or a dark green feature wall.

The cost includes exceptional quality framing, dry mounted (meaning the painting remains completely flat forever), art glass (thick UV reflective glass ensuring the painting doesn't fade), mounted and framed with the best materials.  Close from Natural Oak, Limed Oak, Dark Stained Oak or White Washed Wood (my favourite!). 

Of course if you'd prefer to frame the painting yourself then the cost is reduced.
