The Glow

This is a beautiful 36 X 36 sofa sized painting titled "The Glow", by artist Joey Santiago. With just a couple of chalkboard push pins, this painting is ready to hang and is protected by 2 coats of medium gloss varnish.

 The Glow - Branches Glowing At Night

I love the way the effects of the lighting on the branches turned out with this painting. Instead of using a painting knife or brush, I decided to create the tones in the background using a household sponge. After that came the tree and branches. Lastly, came the highlights in glowing sage green.

What would the world be like without trees? We would certainly miss their beauty. Think about the changes in colors from season to season, the rustle of leaves under our feet, the beautiful green of the evergreen trees standing in the white winter snow. What are some other beautiful things about trees?

A summer without trees would be much hotter. Trees give us shade and help cool the air. Trees “drink” huge amounts of water each day through their roots. Some of that water passes through the leaves into the air to give us moisture. Trees also help clean our air by taking the part of it we can’t breathe (carbon dioxide) to make their own food. As they do this, they make oxygen, which is the air we breathe. Many animals would be without homes and food if there were no trees. Birds, squirrels, bugs,and mice are just a few of the animals that live in and around trees. These animals and others get much of their food from trees. Bark, nuts, leaves, and fruit are tasty treats for many animals—and for
people, too.
