A Walk in the Woodsby Robin Wolf & Palmer Uhl
‘A Walk in the Woods’ was inspired by nature. The theme ‘Out of Ashes: Art Emerging from Fallen Trees’ stirred both of us. We are honored to produce our ArtSpire from a fallen ash tree that depicts a woodland setting. 2020 has been a difficult year for our world. Many of us have found nature and a walk in the woods bring us peace and solace.
The spire design was executed using a technique called negative painting, creating an undercoat made up of flora found in nature, and then an outline of trees was created with white. Birds fly and rest in the trees.

After studying figure drawing and painting for many years, she changed her focus to landscape subjects, inspired by scenes that feel to be a world of their own.
