The Tree of the Dead by MeanHouseArt The Tree of the Dead by MeanHouseArt
Painted this while listening to a lecture in class. Wanted to do an environment. 

Socitey6 print: society6.com/meanhouseart/Tree…

Edit: WOAH thanks for the DD! I would love to thank all of you personally, but there\'re just too many. Don\'t worry, I read every single one of them.

Keep painting, guys!

this piece is so astounding. the colors are striking and pull you in. the whole thing is balanced by the birds and the blue at the top. the texture is perfect with the sort of clean-cut edges you used. amazing!

I love the contrast in color and the use of white to represent death.  So many modern pieces use black to represent death, but a lot of people never realize that white was the original mourning color.  Such a touching metaphor.  Beautifully done and well deserved DD!

Beautiful piece! Love the striking contrast of the white tree foliage (and the birds) against the richness of the red tones. I have to ask, was the lecture in anyway related to the art? Congrats on the DD!
