The new “A Brush with Nature” collection was created to celebrate the completion of the brand’s pledge to plant 1.5 million trees by 2022 in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Candy, art and nature-lovers alike can bid now on up to 10 original custom-framed paintings on eBay with an opening bid set at $100 until 8:00 a.m. EST on June 28, 2022.
For those unable to score an original painting, Black Forest is also making reprints available through eBay. All proceeds from both the auction and sale of the replica prints will go directly to the National Forest Foundation, bringing the initiative full circle and allowing consumers to directly support preserving our nation’s trees with a single bid.
To produce the paintings, materials like paint brushes and conte crayon were affixed to adjacent limbs and branches of trees with eco-friendly twine in the Angeles National Forest, located outside of Los Angeles, California. As natural wind moved their branches, the trees painted 10 vibrant, individually unique pieces of art.
