Swedish Birches

Swedish Birches,  7x10" Oil pastel on illustration board
©2014, Helen Read 
matted in white to fit 11x14" frame

(Free domestic shipping, IL residents please add 8 % sales tax) 
As a part of September's Virtual Paintout destination,  this oil pastel depicts a lovely little site in Gothenburg, Sweden.  Something about this was reminiscent of the wonderful Swedish artist, Carl Larson , whom I have long enjoyed.   He had a wonderful way of depicting life in the Swedish country side in the 1800s.   The colors and the simplicity of composition give it the peaceful feel of another era. 
This comes matted and ready to put into an 11 x 14" frame.
