Gum Tree by Christine Davis

ARTIST NOTES: Gum trees are among the most ancient and resilient trees on earth and just as much as human beings, exert a will to adapt to adversity. We can be inspired by the way a gum tree grows from a weak sapling to a large structure continually reaching to the sky as if it is pointing away from itself to hope beyond. It gains strength from this internal hope. It continues to grown and adapt despite all the events surrounding it. The oil painting on stretched canvas titled 'Majestic Gum Tree' is a celebration of its sculpture, colour and patterns on its trunk. The Gum tree is a work of art and an amazing natural sculpture to be appreciated in its environment. This painting was created from a reference photo of the view of the trunk from the ground up. Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang. Signed on the front. Varnished for protection

                                       CHRISTINE DAVIS ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Christine began to pursue her passion for creating art by participating in mixed media and drawing classes at the Victorian Artist Society in Melbourne.  During this time, she created many watercolor paintings and several drawings which were shown in exhibitions.   She later enrolled for the diploma of Visual Arts at Victoria University where she was introduced to painting in oils and printmaking.  Christine and her family moved to Adelaide in 2020 where she transferred her art study to the Adelaide College of the Arts and  completed the diploma of Visual Arts. She is now participating in  art classes at Splashout Studios and occasional workshops at the Adelaide Art Society to continue to extend her skills. Christine is developing her own unique style of fine art using oils, watercolour, and pencils and recently purchased a printing press so is adding prints to her work.  She now exhibits her artworks in various exhibitions in  Adelaide.   Christine's art is her way of revealing the beauty around us. ‘Your artwork has made me think about landscapes differently’ quote from the viewer.
