Birken a picture for an exhibition




ethereal birches by susan schwake 20x20 inches acrylic/canvas
I was invited to join an exhibition entitled Mesteceni/Birken/Birches which opens at the end of 2010 at The Art Museum Timsoara, Romania. Elisabeth Ochsenfeld organized this invitational and I was thrilled to be a part of it. The works are all about birch trees, their symbolic meanings and their esthetic. Each piece is 50cm x50cm so there will be a second unifying parameter. I can't wait to see them all together in photographs to see what everyone came up with! My piece is acrylic on canvas and is called Ethereal birches.

Just love it! Is the painting just acrylic, the texture in the leaves is eye candy. Good luck with your new adventure.

Beautiful! Love the yellows. they make me swoon. And do I hear "Pictures at an Exhibition" in the background? When I do, I also see the face of my high school band teacher (not so pretty!!).
