There is a wistful tranquility to this painting. The birch longs beyond the horizon but is willfully weighted down into its home sands by the serene colors which envelop it. Not long before painting this, my fiancé and I had to cancel our wedding and honeymoon trip to France because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We took time off work and went on a compensatory camping trip to P.J. Hoffmaster State Park instead. While it was difficult to put our plans on hold, I was completely content and grateful to be painting beside the love of my life along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. The palette that I used is based on Goethe's Melancholic color scheme.
