This Plein Air oil painting depicts a hazy late afternoon landscape, where an old dead tree stands next to a tranquil stream. The inspiration behind this work stems from my appreciation for the beauty and melancholy found in nature's cycles of life and decay.

I hope it evokes a sense of nostalgia, tranquility, and contemplation. The hazy atmosphere and the soft, warm light of the late afternoon create a serene and dreamlike ambiance. The presence of the old dead tree invites viewers to reflect on the passage of time and the impermanence of existence.

The subject matter of the painting, with the juxtaposition of the decaying tree and the flowing stream, carries symbolic significance. It represents the cycle of life and death, where even in decay, beauty and harmony can be found. The stream, symbolizing renewal and the continuity of life, serves as a contrast to the stillness of the old tree.

This work captures the subtleties of light, atmosphere, and emotion within the natural world, and serves as a reminder of the impermanence of all things and encourages viewers to find solace in the quiet moments of reflection and acceptance.
