Tree of Light by crimson-ivory Tree of Light by crimson-ivory
This thing took forever to dry! It's an oil painting, so it took a month or two to dry so that I could touch it up and submit it. A lot of emotions went into this, even though I don't understand exactly what it means. I think this is my very first FINISHED oil painting. I have a lot of WIPS... ooh too many lol! Tell me what you think :)

I love the thick texture on the tree! Congrats on finishing your first oil painting. It does seem very symbolic, though I don't know what it means. It is very simplistic, yet the composition is pretty good. I crave something down below those roots, to bring my eye down and around in the painting. Nice job.

I like this alot, as for meaning to me I see it symbolizing the feeling of being burnt out by something, but the thing about art of any kind is it means something different to everyone that sees it.

Thanks a lot :) I think you're pretty close to what it means to me, just being sick of dealing with things I guess.

Wow. :o The emotion is there but in an undertone(if that makes any sense). Like it all symbolizes something (i get the feeling it's symbolizing life somehow but i'm not sure) but the meaning is hidden somewhere in those dark reds..
