Portland-based artist Cathy McMurray sells her reclaimed wood artwork on the website Etsy and manages to capture beautifully charming nature scenes in her work.

Each piece of art takes the shape of a circle as it is painted onto sliced trees, allowing for a rustic and unique backdrop to showcase the beautiful landscapes painted on. McMurray's reclaimed wood artwork mostly focuses on surreal interpretations of the natural world -- including a deer in the woods, a serene moonlit pond and several mountain landscapes.

Her charming reclaimed wood artwork has already resulted in partnerships with popular brands such as Urban Outfitters. With her creative platform and inspiring, surrealist landscapes, the artist manages to invoke a sense of wonder in her work that would be difficult for most to achieve.
