"The Lift of Nature"
Oil     16x20
Inspiration and Design:
This painting and composition celebrates the "lift" that nature provides to the human spirit.  The large fallen tree lifts the girl, while the wind lifts the girl's hair.  I excluded nearby trees from the composition, because I wanted the young girl's head to rise above all other elements.
